Coffee and Conversation!

Is your searching/information seeking biased?

Take a break and join us for an informal discussion on bias in information
seeking.  

 

Our discussion will focus on the following questions:

.        Can bias affect information seeking/information retrieval?  If yes,
what is the bias and how does it impact information seeking?

 

.        What should we be aware of within our own thinking when searching?

 

.        What steps/actions can we take to reduce the impact of bias in our
searching?

Lorri Zipperer, Rebecca Graves and Barb Jones will be discussing the
following articles:

influence of outcome desirability on selective exposure and likelihood
