The 21st Annual SIG-USE Research Symposium focuses on the theme of methods for investigating and making real-world impact with human information behavior and practices research. This symposium is an opportunity for researchers, students, faculty, and information professionals who are interested in information behavior and practices to discuss the metatheories, methodological approaches, research methods, and techniques that shape human information behavior and practices research, and that translate to positive differences in the world. The symposium will feature an informative panel presentation, as well as several paper and poster presentations, in order to explore different methodological and methods-related developments and challenges in information behavior and practices research. The symposium will also offer a Q&A session for authors who are interested in submitting their works to the upcoming Library and Information Science Research special issue on information behavior and information practices methods.

This half-day workshop aims to support and advance an ASIS&T AI community by connecting AI research and practice in library and information environments. We invite a broad range of participants who are already engaged in developing AI applications and solutions and are interested in learning about the opportunities and challenges in AI research, by discussing how to integrate empirical research findings into AI development. Through a panel discussion, lightning talks, a brainstorming session, breakout group conversations, and a plenary discussion, the workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to obtain feedback on preliminary and ongoing work, identify pressing challenges and critical questions of AI in library and information environments, and develop new research problems and approaches.

Location: Ballroom Prefunction, Lobby Level, Marriott
1:00pm - 5:00pmDoctoral Colloquium
Location: Salon B, Lobby Level, Marriott

The goals of the ASIS&T Doctoral Colloquium are to provide doctoral students with a supportive and critical learning opportunity to discuss their work, highlight theoretical and methodological problems/issues for further discussion and inquiry with senior mentors and Colloquium participants. As in previous years, the organizers will invite a group of prominent professors and experts to serve as mentors during the Doctoral Colloquium. Participants will have the opportunity to receive feedback and comments about their work, in one-on-one sessions with mentors. There will also be an open discussion session where students can ask the mentors questions about the job search, managing an academic career, developing and maintaining a research agenda, and other topics of interest. Another goal of the Colloquium is to develop a supportive community within which students can begin to develop a professional network, interacting with peers and senior scholars in information science and related disciplines.

This workshop is dedicated to patron-privacy protections in public libraries welcomes all participants who are public librarians, information technology experts, or academic researchers interested in data privacy. Prof. Masooda Bashir, who was recently awarded an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) /National Leadership Grant (NLG) to study this topic, will lead the workshop. Participants will learn about new research in this field, hear from experts on their approaches to patron privacy, and have an opportunity to discuss possible steps forward for public libraries in the United States. Panelists will share how different libraries, with varying clienteles, deal with patron privacy concerns. Discussions will culminate in a draft for an open-access guide that identifies the specific challenges public libraries face in protecting patron privacy, lists best practices, and establishes a network of collaborators who will develop a shared vision to tackle this problem. The workshop aims to support public libraries’ ongoing efforts to promote equitable access to information and safeguard users’ privacy, particularly for low-income populations and minority communities, who are often both frequent users of public-library digital resources and at risk for violations of their personal privacy.
