From the announcement (though this isn't self-promotion!):
Libraries have never been better equipped to provide universal access to all human knowledge. While technical advances promise to change the way libraries serve the public, librarians are now at the center of a number of contentious issues ranging from copyright, censorship and content filtering to enforcement of the Patriot Act. We'll hear about the future of libraries and discuss these issues with an all-star panel that includes:
- Daniel Greenstein, president, the California Digital Libraries Initiative
- Anne Lipow, director of the Library Solutions Institute
- Brewster Kahle, founder of The Internet Archive
Doors open at 6:00; discussion starts at 7. A $10 donation is suggested to help fund the Hillside Club and cover food and drink. RSVP to [email protected] if you're coming!
Directions: From the Bay Bridge or Oakland and points south, take the University St. exit off 880, bear right and go straight (north) along the frontage road for about half a mile. Make a right onto Cedar Street and continue 2.3 miles. The Hillside Club is three blocks east (up the hill) of Shattuck Ave, between Spruce and Arch Streets, and there is parking in the neighborhood.
