Privacy Toolkit for Librarians with Alison Macrina of the Library Freedom Project
The loss of privacy is a complex issue, and librarians have a professional obligation to prevent the further erosion of this basic human right. Join Alison Macrina of Library Freedom Project for a half-day training on new and emerging surveillance threats and technology tools that will help patrons take back their digital privacy in the information age. Alison will discuss ways that we can use these tools in the library and empower patrons to use them on their own.
As a result of attending this workshop, attendees will:
- Learn how to protect library patrons from online privacy threats
- Understand some of the new and emerging surveillance threats from vendors, corporation, government agencies and hackers
- Discover tools that will help people protect their privacy.
Alison Macrina is the Founder and Director of the Library Freedom Project and a core contributor to The Tor Project.
