Information policy and developments in information technology have a dramatic impact on society and how we find and use information. In turn, society is struggling with these dramatic changes and their effect on economics, politics, and the lives of individuals and communities.

Through readings, discussions, and assignments, students will probe complex issues such as information overload, the digital divide, information ethics, indeterminate authority, and the open access movement
