Digital Amnesia: Money, Technology, Politics, and the Future of Memory Institutions

Friday, April 20, 2018 at 11:00am to 1:00pm

Austin E. Knowlton Athletics Complex
210 Woodland St., Oberlin, OH 44074

Bernard F. Reilly, president of the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), will discuss how the public record and the social utility of memory institutions are at risk amid the growing privatization of data, media consolidation, and the non-transparency of the Cloud, as part of the Future of the Library Lecture Series.

These trends, and recent developments in the library world, suggest that new strategies are needed to ensure the long-term integrity and accessibility of documentation and evidence. 

CRL is an international consortium of university, college,and independent research libraries based in Chicago, of which Oberlin is a proud member.
