What about Privacy Literacy? Libraries and Privacy Education in the Digital Age

A session at LITA Forum

Friday 13th November, 2015

4:30pm to 5:15pm (CST)

Librarians are trusted advocates of constitutional rights and the freedom to read. We provide needed instruction for those navigating an increasingly-complex information environment. Yet, we could be doing more to inform public notions of privacy. Our society remains full of threats to personal privacy as well as opportunities to leverage information. Whether the topic is Facebook, Google or the NSA, people need help protecting and using their personal information. Libraries are well-positioned to meet this need by providing instruction in privacy literacy. This presentation will discuss privacy issues and examine a model for teaching Personal Privacy in the Digital Age.
