Blockchain Buzz: Hype, Speculative Applications, and Implications for the Information Professions (Meet the Authors Series)

May 7, 2020 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (EDT)


The blockchain investigation coordinated by the San Jose State University iSchool provided clear directives to build use cases that test scalability and usefulness. Many of the blockchain experts who participated in the project contributed short essays for the recent ALA Library Futures publication, Blockchain. This session will identify the issues, skepticism, and possible applications that involve blockchain technology. Learning Objectives: The talk will address questions such as: What does context really mean? How do we map the conceptual space of context? What are the boundaries of context? What are the variables that make up context in information behavior and that can be incorporated into research studies?
