Data Privacy, the Library, and You
In the first installment of the four part “Data Privacy Best Practices Training for Libraries” train-the-trainer series, we will explore the fundamentals of data privacy in libraries. Participants will learn the evolution of the concepts of privacy and data, and how libraries incorporated privacy into their profession. We will review what current factors and issues shape data privacy in libraries, such as surveillance technologies and the rapid shift to virtual-first services and remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic. This interactive webinar will provide the foundation for library privacy trainers and advocates as they work through the rest of the train-the-trainer series.
Note – This series will include suggested readings and exercises to complement each webinar. Participants are also highly encouraged to take part in the privacy discussions on Basecamp.
