Library Freedom Project Workshop

CO-ASIS&T presents a special 2-part workshop with Alison Macrina of the Library Freedom Project, presenting strategies to librarians to protect patrons from online threats to privacy.

Alison Macrina is a librarian, privacy activist, and founder and director of the Library Freedom Project.  She will talk about surveillance threats, privacy rights and responsibilities, and technical tools to help patrons take back their digital privacy in the information age.  Alison will cover issues of surveillance as they relate to library communities, how to deal with government information requests with resources from the ACLU, and privacy-protecting technologies that will help library patrons thwart data collection and keep their communications safe.

CO-ASIS&T is offering this workshop both in-person and via web conferencing software.  Participation through either means is free to members of any ASIS&T chapter, and $20 for all others.  Please direct any questions to
