This spring, LITA’s Patron Privacy Interest Group will offer a webinar/training series on privacy issues for libraries! Targeted at “advanced newcomers,” this series is for you if you’re interested in privacy issues; have ever wondered how to protect the data you use; and read through the Patron Privacy Checklists and wondered what else was out there. Led by member-experts of the Patron Privacy Interest Group, this series will tackle privacy policies and staff training, strategies to manage the lifecycle of personally identifiable information (PII), tips for adopting encrypted technologies, defending the privacy of library patrons, and communicating about and advocating for privacy to library stakeholders.
And the first webinar is free! The remaining four can be attended individually or get a package deal for all four.
Here’s the line up:
