The American Library Association is having an online forum throughout the Privacy Week, sharing discussions and lectures by professionals in the profession that deal with online privacy. The schedule includes discussions on passwords, discovery services, and creating digital privacy literacy games.
The American Library Association Office of Information Freedom lists several resources and trends related to privacy that are relevant to libraries. It's important that librarians continue to educate not only their communities, but themselves on privacy. Spread the word and talk with each other and with vendors about what data can be accessed and what data is kept confidential.
