On Wednesday, March 20, at noon, Professor Joe Turow of the Annenberg School will give the next talk in the UPenn Libraries Speaker Series of 2019/20. 

The title of Turow's talk is richly connected to challenges that face libraries and their users in a networked world: "What Would Happen if Publishers Treated Libraries the Way Target Treats Its Customers?" It's a question that draws on Turow's extensive research about big data and the use of data to influence media, marketing, politics, and social policy. Given the Library's time-honored role as defender of user privacy and the growing tension between privacy and the enticements of data-driven technologies, Turow's talk will be of the highest relevance and interest to our vision and planning for the future.
