Event description

Description

Blockchain is an emerging technology that will change the way we acquire and share information. It’s imperative that librarians take a role in shaping how this technology is applied to content creation, storage and distribution or risk being disrupted. This session will cover the basics of blockchain, existing research related to our field, and use cases that still need to be explored. For interested attendees, SLA Toronto will be supporting Stephen in creating a working group to further investigate this technology and the potentials for information science professionals.

Ticket sales to close at 3:00 pm on March 27.
