A Framework for Patron Privacy in (and outside) of Library Systems

A session at LITA Forum

Friday 13th November, 2015

3:30pm to 4:15pm (CST)

Libraries have a long history of supporting the privacy of patron data. Despite this advocacy, the nature of patron privacy in a digital environment is evolving in ways that are outside of the direct control of libraries. For example, many library systems are cloud-based and managed by vendors, and much of the digital content is web-based & controlled by publishers, in both cases the library does not directly control interaction data. NISO has launched a project to develop a consensus framework around patron privacy in these systems, bringing together libraries, publishers and vendors. This session will describe the developing framework.
