Developing Good Privacy Policies, a free LITA webinar

LITA Blog - Mon, 2018-03-19 14:34

Kicking off Privacy in Libraries, a LITA webinar series is the free webinar:

Developing Good Privacy Policies 
Wednesday, March 28, 2018, Noon – 1:30 pm Central Time
Presenter: Sarah Houghton

Use this link to reserve your spot (required)
Thank you to the Library Leadership & Management Association (LLAMA) for co-sponsoring.

Get the details on the LITA Privacy in Libraries series web page.

Writing policies can be exciting when it’s something you care about–and librarians care about privacy. This webinar will help you write (or revise) a privacy policy to include critical issues like privacy law, professional ethics surrounding privacy, how you handle personally identifiable information, what section should be covered in a solid privacy policy, and making it all comprehensible to a layperson. We will also discuss how to ensure that the privacy policy is understood and adhered to by all library stakeholders–from library staff to supervisors and governance bodies.

Sarah Houghton worked for a decade in library technology and for the past seven years has worked as the Director at the San Rafael Public Library. She focuses her “off work time work” on library ethics, privacy, surveillance, censorship, and intellectual freedom.

View details and Reserve your spot here.
