Challenges of gender issues in technology librarianship News You Can Use Update Pennsylvania Convention Center
201 C
Description :

Join us for a lively panel and discussion about the challenges of gender issues in technology librarianship. At the intersection of librarianship (80% female), technology (80% male), and the culture at large, library technologists face an evolving, and sometimes surprising, set of gender issues. In recent blogs and panel discussions, we find that our different perspectives result in very different beliefs about what these issues look like today. This diverse panel will debate our varying experiences of gender in library technology, and invite your questions.
