FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Jessamyn West speaks Oct 26th on Small Libraries/Digital Divide

Jessamyn West of librarian.net will be webcasting this presentation from San Jose State University, on Wednesday, October 26, 2005:

“The Information Poor and the Information Don’t Care: Small Libraries and the Digital Divide”
When: Wednesday, October 26, 2005 from 7 PM to 8:30PM
Where: San Jose, King Library, room 225b

After broadcast, talk will be archived on the Internet at http://amazon.sjsu.edu:8080/ramgen/wiab/jwest/archive.smil.

I’m highlighting this talk because I think the digital capabilities of small libraries will be important in a future where the federal government expects virtually all information to be available exclusively on the Internet.

I’ll try to catch her talk this week and summarize it for you. If someone beats me to it, please feel free to comment below!
