Privacy is a core value of librarianship, yet it often feels like an overwhelming and onerous undertaking. Our users expect that their information and library use will remain confidential, in fact many state laws require it. With a deluge of information telling library workers why privacy is important and what the issues are, there has until now been a lack of practical how-to guides for making concrete privacy changes in the library. The Institute of Museum and Library Services, in partnership with the American Library Association, has sponsored the creation of Privacy Field Guides. Come to this session to learn more about how you can use these guides in your library and leave empowered to make privacy changes at your library!
