Join Gigi Swinnerton (Information Literacy Scholar, G’21) and Hanna Seraji (Information Literacy Scholar, G’22), for a hands on workshop focusing on the intricate and insidious nature of bias and systemic racism in searching the internet. This workshop will focus on uncovering the basics of “search” with regard to understanding that all information is subject to bias because of the structure of algorithms and human-made information organization systems, such as the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH). This workshop will be the introduction to a series in conjunction with other subject librarians who will delve into how these organization systems affect their specific field.
