George Miller, Professor of Psychology, coined the term informavore, "an organism that consumes information." Librarians are the alpha informavores, as we, on a daily basis consume, organize and manage information; an ever evolving process. With the advent of social media networks and emerging new technologies, the way we receive and deliver information is changing. What are the social, ethical and legal issues of this new form of information consumption? How does social media affect our privacy, our children, our workplace? Engage with ethicists, lawyers and librarians as they discuss the many issues arising from social networking. What kind of informavores have we become? What kind of informavores will we become?
