What is your library doing to provide a secure digital environment for library patrons? How is your library protecting the privacy of patrons in this digital world? Patron privacy is of critical importance to libraries, and should be a foundational principle guiding library policy and practice. It is included in the American Library Association's Code of Ethics and the Library Bill of Rights. As technology changes rapidly, libraries and librarians are working hard to keep up with digital security issues to better protect the privacy of their users. But this is not an easy task.

Come to this free webinar to learn about patron privacy issues in public libraries. This webinar will explore two key areas of patron privacy: public access technology and the collection of patron data. Our guests will share practical tips and advice on how to better protect patron privacy. We will also share recommended resources for continued learning on this topic.

  • Bill Budington, from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), will talk about digital security issues that impact patron privacy in public libraries, and will share tools and information from EFF that can be useful for libraries.
  • Chuck McAndrew, IT Librarian at the Lebanon Public Libraries (NH), will share actions he has taken at this small library to better protect patron privacy and to teach library users (how to better protect their own privacy).
