Toronto Public Library is the busiest urban public library system in the world. Every year, TPL has millions of users visiting its branches and taking advantage of their online services. Join ULC member library TPL on Wednesday, November 6, at noon ET and learn how algorithmic decision-making has shaped library users' online experiences in ways often hidden from public scrutiny. Plus, you will learn more about TPL's recent public programming initiative about this critical emerging technology and hear how it has created new public engagement opportunities for the library. Come learn from TPL's experience. They want to share their resources!
