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
