Information Studio Objectives

Prior to attending the Information Studio, please complete the studio pretest here:


After interviewing a librarian, discuss the following in class with a librarian:

  • How information can be organized and curated by different agents within social and political frameworks and how that affects access and interpretation.
  • The changing nature of information (medium, format, etc.) and how the medium can affect how students interact with information.
  • The idea of authority, how it is constructed, and how it can be affected by context.
  • The idea that information is never neutral, but is always shaped by individuals who transform data into "information".
