Meetup: Libraries as Open Knowledge Spaces

Libraries are hubs for facilitating access to knowledge. In an age of "fake news", however, what is needed is not merely a literacy that allows for distinguishing between what is fake and what is not. Rather, what is required is a public pedagogy that reinvigorates the openness and commons nature of information and knowledge in ways that thwart off their creeping commodification. How can librarians, information specialists, activists facilitate this? Let's discuss it in this meetup!
