Libraries and legacy media always shared a common purpose — helping us acquire the information we need to be engaged, informed (and entertained) citizens. But they used different tools — newspapers, broadcast stations and books. Now they all share the web, information technology and increasingly a mission — fostering civic engagement and literacy.
As the tools and mission converge, it’s time to ask: “What’s possible at the intersection of libraries and journalism that serves the information needs of communities and democracy?” Help us answer that question . . . and others . . . as JTM convenes its first-ever event in Boston — on April 6-7 at the MIT Center for Future Civic Media in Cambridge.
We chose those dates — a Wednesday evening and full day on Thursday — because that’s immediately before the National Conference for Media Reform (NCMR), also in Boston. And you can register once for Beyond Books and be cross-registered to NCMR — for one package price.
