The School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill  is sponsoring the 2018 Symposium on Information for Social Good. The theme of this year’s symposium is “Connect, Engage, Impact.”

The symposium is open to the public and will include panel discussions and a poster session. SILS graduate and undergraduate students will address advanced questions and problems related to current ethical and social justice issues that impact information science. Posters and panels will focus on topics such as big data and public health, climate change and human rights, immigrant services in libraries, crypto currency, and toxic masculinity in librarianship.

Symposium tweets should use the hashtag #SILSSG2018.

Registration for the Symposium is free, and can be completed onsite (registration begins at 8 am).
