Privacy in the Library: Understanding the Issues and Working on Practical Strategies for Change
Monday, July 19, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Privacy is one of the core values of librarianship, but often our practices don’t line up with our ethics. In this workshop, we’ll be talking about how to bridge that gap with Alison Macrina of Library Freedom Project. Alison will give an overview of privacy issues in libraries, covering vendors, library websites, public computers, and more. She’ll talk about our rights and responsibilities in protecting patron information, how to talk about and teach privacy to various stakeholders, and other steps to better privacy practices that can create a culture of privacy in the library. This workshop will be partly interactive; participants are asked to come ready to share their own experiences and ask questions.
