Theme: Privacy in Public: Implications for Libraries
Technology has become an integral part of our lives, and has made it easier than ever to find and share information online. Ever wonder what this easy access means for your patrons’ privacy? What information is shared when we access online databases, collections, or install the latest app on our smartphones? Do you struggle to raise awareness about the importance of protecting your privacy? At this year’s Digital Odyssey, we’ll be tackling these issues and more. In addition to presentations from experts in the field, we’re thrilled to announce that Alison Macrina from the Library Freedom Project will be leading a hands on workshop to teach us about privacy tools. Come to Digital Odyssey to learn about the latest privacy issues and take away tips and tricks that you can put to work in your library, whether it’s an academic, public, school or special library.
This year we’ll be meeting at the beautiful Central Library branch of the Hamilton Public Library. The Central Library is easily accessed by public transit (it’s only a short walk from the Hamilton Go Station) and public parking is also available in the vicinity. We hope to see you there!
