Three Librarians have articles in Pennsylvania Libraries: Research and Practice

Three Weinberg Memorial Librarians have articles in the latest issue of Pennsylvania Libraries: Research and Practice, a peer-reviewed, open-access journal published by the Pennsylvania Library Association.

Assistant Professor Ian O’Hara’s article, Feedback Loops: Algorithmic Authority, Emergent Biases, and Implications for Information Literacy examines how bias has been built into systems we use for information storage and retrieval and how this impacts information literacy instruction.

Assistant Professors Kelly Banyas and Marleen Cloutier’s article, Affording Access: Pathways to Reducing Textbook Costs discusses the Library’s Open Educational Resources (OER) grant, a survey conducted of other universities OER initiatives, and changes made based on the survey results.

Congratulations Prof. O’Hara, Prof. Banyas, and Prof. Cloutier!
