Information Makes Us Human

By Joe Janes, Associate Professor and MLIS Program Chair at the University of Washington’s iSchool

Janes will relate “the story of information in its myriad guises and forms and uses, how it affected and is affected by us and by our quest to understand and make meaning of the world around us.” In addition to his regular column “Internet Librarian” for American Libraries, Janes recently launched the podcast “Documents that Changed the World,” which discusses the origin of historically important documents, their original meaning and how that meaning has changed along with our world.
