Choose Privacy Week
May 1 - May 7
Choose Privacy Week, first observed by the American Library Association in 2010, is an initiative that invites library users into a conversation about privacy rights in the digital age. The campaign gives libraries the tools they need to educate and engage users, and gives citizens the resources to think critically and make more informed choices about their privacy.
This year’s theme, “Big Data is Watching You”, features a kick-off webinar that offers libraries detailed guidance on conducting a privacy audit, while an online symposium considers the ethics and issues raised by the use of “big data” in libraries.
