about this item

Librarians, professors, and those working in nonprofit institutions, businesses, and government agencies in the US offer 24 chapters on how to interpret and apply library values in the context of emerging technologies. They draw on the American Library Association’s Core Values of Librarianship to discuss the underlying frameworks that guide librarian practice, as well as real-world applications. They discuss technology in the context of postmodernism, neoliberalism, and the new technocracy; how technologies like the Tor Browser can be implemented in libraries and support the values of privacy and intellectual freedom; the ethical implications of digital tools; the Twitter archive at the Library of Congress; the Institute of Museum and Library Services national digital platform as a framework for digital library tools and services; bringing open access into interlibrary loan; how libraries inadvertently undermine values like patron privacy through tracking cookies; how information sharing has been disrupted by cloud computing and has implications for copyright; technology-based challenges like online censorship and bullying; how open source software supports library values; and supporting more open technology paradigms. They also discuss partnering with open source communities and projects; developing digital and information literacy in adults; protecting users from surveillance; how the values of free access to information and privacy and consent can conflict with each other; implementing user policies; open educational resources; the importance of open access in institutional repositories and archives; creating an open access repository from a physical collection; implementing a makerspace; forming a collaborative coding interest group; setting up free and open source software; learning analytics technologies and privacy issues; and applying inclusive principles in web design.
