Project Overview

The Pacific Library Partnership received an LSTA grant in FY 2019/2020 to create the Data Privacy Best Practices Training for Libraries project. This project aims to develop California specific training for libraries on privacy-related topics surrounding library data privacy and digital safety, including privacy policy and procedure best practices, tips for library staff for working with vendors in sharing patron data, and an overview of the data privacy lifecycle in libraries.

This project is a collaborative effort between PLP member libraries and consultants from LDH Consulting, and the final toolkit will include content from other organizations who have invested time and energy in curating content regarding data privacy best practices.
