Hendrickson Forum Today

Hi SMU Library Lovers,
At 1:30pm today, the Hendrickson Institute is hosting a seminar From Free to Fee and Other Information Age Challenges. This topic affects everyone--come and ask questions! Here's a quick overview of the content of the Q&A seminar:
Organizations and individuals are drowning in information. How can they search, assess, and distribute it in order to make good decisions?
  • How do organizations find all the credible information they need? What’s about free vs. paid services?
  • Who “owns” information? How are intellectual property rights protected?
  • While we search and buy online, what data is being collected about us and how do businesses use it?
  • How has the packaging and selling of information changed business models? How are organizations adapting to information as "the product"?
