LibUX Chicago held a book club discussion on December 13th at On Tour Brewing.
Data Feminism is an open source publication about inclusive data collection. This was an in-depth discussion about feminist principles in data collection. LibUX Chicago used this discussion to review the initial draft of the book and provide feedback before official publication.
The book and chapter descriptions can be found here: https://bookbook.pubpub.org/data-feminism
Library UX Chicago held our annual year-end event on Friday, December 15 from 1pm-4pm at DePaul University's Richardson Library. This year we experimented with a slightly new format for the event; in addition to our annual lightning talks, we set aside time to workshop project ideas.
