Mind Bugs: The Ordinary Origins of Bias

Conscious experience provides an immediate, compelling, and incomplete account of mental life. Much of perception, thinking, and action is shaped by mental activity that occurs outside of conscious awareness or conscious control. Because of that, judgment and action can be unintentionally influenced by factors that we do not recognize, and may not value.
     — from Project Implicit

Calvin Lai of Project Implicit led meeting participants in a highly interactive session that demonstrated everyone has implicit biases. He also showed participants some ways that they can work to consciously counteract their biases.

Joyce Backus, Associate Director for Library Operations, National Library of Medicine

Analyzing Acquisitions Data

With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Ithaka S+R is studying academic library acquisitions data. Although the researchers’ initial interest was the changing market share of book vendors, and especially Amazon, they are gathering a wealth of data that is permitting them to address a variety of additional questions. In this session, researchers previewed pilot findings, sought input on the types of additional analysis that would be helpful to ARL members, and solicited participation beyond the pilot phase.
