Information Overload and the Quality of Your Life: Can a New
Environmental Movement Restore Balance?
Track: Digital Information & Technologies
Both the accelerating pace of life and the amount of information we are
expected to process trouble many of us. The keynote speaker will develop
the notion of information environmentalism as a response to the torrent
of 24/7 media and information that is upsetting the balance of our
lives. Coping strategies, including preservation of space and time for
reading, contemplation, and reflection, will be discussed.
Speakers: Dr. David Levy, Professor, University of Washington Information
School; Rosann V. Bazirjian, University Librarian, The University of North
Carolina-Greensboro and ALCTS President; Joyce Ogburn, Director of the J.
Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah
