Whether your patrons realize it or not, they are counting on you to ensure that their personal data remains private when they use the library. As more information is collected, shared, and mined, the ability to understand and manage information privacy has become a necessity. In this informative webinar based on her book Information Privacy Fundamentals for Librarians and Information Professionals, (Rowman & Littlefield, 2014), Cherie L. Givens – a Certified Information Privacy Professional and privacy consultant – will introduce key concepts and answer questions. Givens will detail why every library needs a privacy policy, discuss the importance of privacy training and audits, and offer advice and considerations for drafting privacy policies.
