The Balancing Act of Digital Privacy & 
Digital Services 
in Libraries

744 views

Published on

2015 KLA-MLA Joint Conference, Heather Braum & Robin Hastings, NEKLS

Libraries have long been concerned with protecting the records of what patrons read. But with the rise of multiple library digital services, are we continuing to protect patron data? Concerns about password security, third party vendors, remote access, plain text transfer, and more security issues will be shared. Additionally, a conversation will occur around what information libraries are trading for the information they are getting from third party vendors. Ultimately, participants will walk away with a better understanding of data privacy and security issues in libraries today.
