Mark your calendars for “Revisiting CIPA 10 Years Later,” a national online symposium that will consider the impact of the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) on access to electronic information. Librarians nationwide can join the virtual conversation with two Google Hangouts on July 30.
The first Hangout will start at 11 a.m. EDT and focus on an “Introduction and Overview of CIPA 10 Years Later.” The second one will share “Symposium Themes and Conclusions” starting at 12:15 p.m. EDT. The online discussions will be hosted by the American Library Association and Google, Inc.
Here’s how to join the conversation:
- You can watch the live stream directly on YouTube on the ALA Washington Office channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/ALAWashingtonOffice/ ). ALA will tweet the URL using #CIPA_ALA13 at 10:45am EDT, right before the Hangout goes live.
- You can also tweet @oitp using our hash tag #CIPA_ALA13. We’ll be watching the Twitter feed and passing these comments to the speakers, as well.
“Revisiting the Children’s Internet Protection Act: 10 Years Later” is part of ALA’s Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP) and Office for Intellectual Freedom’s (OIF) larger project on CIPA and access to information, made possible through support of Google, Inc. A white paper will be released this fall.
