Keynote Speaker


Keynote Speaker: Mary Minow - This will be Mary's second appearance as a keynote speaker for the Digital Commonwealth. Her first address (in 2007) drew rave reviews, and we are delighted to welcome her back.

Mary Minow is an advanced leadership initiative fellow at Harvard University and is a Presidential Appointee to the board of the Institute of Museum and Library Services. She is one of the foremost legal scholars on issues that impact libraries, including copyright and fair use and has been very active in the library community, serving on boards and committees that span a range of interests and communities. Mary has also worked as a consultant with libraries in California and across the country on copyright, privacy, free speech and related legal issues. She most recently was counsel to Califa, a consortium of California libraries that set up its own statewide ebook lending service. Previously she was the Follett Chair at Dominican University’s School of Library and Information Science. Current and past board memberships include the Electronic Privacy Information Center, the Freedom to Read Foundation and the California Association of Trustees and Commissioners (Past Chair). Mary is the recipient of the first Zoia Horn Intellectual Freedom award and also received a WISE (Webbased Information Science Education) award for excellence in online education when she taught part time at San Jose State University. (Adopted from DPLA )
