We live in an era of data breaches and constant surveillance. A core library value is patron privacy. Can libraries reconcile our values with a shifting technological and legal landscape? Tess and Bryan from Library Freedom Project will offer practical advice and explore the ethical implications of future paths. Learn how to utilize valuable data while keeping it safe. Harness the value of free, open source software for encryption and password management. Learn the dangers of bulk data collection and how to mitigate risks via threat models. Consider the risks versus rewards of common internet browsing behavior. Learn best practices for public computer labs, mobile phones, and personal browsing. Consider library ethics and the law (or lack thereof), and our responsibilities to the communities we serve. This session will re-frame how tech people think about policy and how policy people think about tech.

Sponsored jointly by the Iowa Library Association Intellectual Freedom Committee and the Nebraska Library Association Round Table for Intellectual Freedom
