Online Recommendation Info Sessions

I am available to give informational talks, training sessions, and workshops on recommender systems to library staff and patrons. Contact me to set up a session with your library, or a group of libraries in your area!

These sessions teach:

  • What online recommendation is
  • Where recommendations come from (both economically and technically)
  • How recommendations and advertising relate
  • How you can take (some) control over your recommendations

These workshops are available at no charge. As a part of my NSF grant, I have funds to travel Idaho and help libraries and patrons better understand, control, and use recommendation technology.
