About Online Northwest
Online Northwest is a one-day conference focusing on topics that intersect libraries, technology and culture. Presentations address technical, social, and policy issues associated with information technology, information management, and librarianship.
This conference is about the technologies that libraries use to manage, create and share information. It is for anyone who uses and interacts with information from librarians to programmers and system administrators.
While technology often functions to exclude or surveil, the planning committee takes seriously the library’s role as a place for everyone. We recognize the Northwest’s history of racial exclusion, and work actively to center racial justice and inclusion in this conference. We also recognize the ways that technology can increase–or decrease–access for disabled and other marginalized people, and are interested in conference topics on this subject.
