Instructor:

Deborah Lines Andersen

School:

University at Albany

Semester:

Spring 2013

Description:

This course is designed to provide an overview of important topics in the area of information policy. During the last two decades, the growing importance of information as a societal, management and economic tool has strained our previous laws and regulations governing the proper use and role of information in national and international society. During the semester, we will study some key information policies at the state, national and international level, in order to better understand their rationale, effectiveness, and appropriateness with regard to their intended role in society. This understanding will help us, as professionals, to anticipate and reflect on changes information policies can be expected to undergo in the future.
