Protecting Privacy in the Library Patron Data Lifecycle
In this interactive workshop, participants will learn about library data privacy through the patron data lifecycle, from the what, where, when, and why of data collection to the logistics of data storage and access, to retention and deletion of data. Each stage will investigate library practices that put patron privacy at risk, as well as ways that library staff can mitigate those risks at that stage. Participants will gain a better overall view of how patron data flows through the library and will come back to their library with a starter kit to help their library protect patron data and feel more confident about ensuring privacy!
