Libraries and Privacy: Critical Issues for Information Professionals
Thursday, October 13, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Our third Library 2.022 mini-conference: “Libraries and Privacy: Critical Issues for Information Professionals,” will be held online (and for free) on Thursday, October 13th, 2022, from 12:00 – 3:00 pm US-Pacific Time.
The mini-conference will highlight the many different kinds of privacy (and privacy problems) that information institutions and professionals face, with an emphasis on how these professionals can and should engage with the critical dimensions of privacy in their work.
Privacy as a field has undergone tremendous change in the past few years as information and communication technologies have become increasingly distributed, with data and records flowing through multiple jurisdictions, under uncertain custody and control, and with the increasing use of automated techniques and agents to make decisions about and through that information. The problems with privacy range from fundamental questions of definition and scope, to questions of equity and inclusion, to intensely technical questions about law and technology.
