New Tools from the Data Privacy Project

Posted on April 27, 2017

Do you want strategies for helping library patrons understand vulnerabilities in their online communications and transactions? Are you looking to train library staff in digital privacy concepts? Do you want to better understand networks, privacy-protecting tools, and risk assessment in a library context?

At the Data Privacy Project, librarians, community activists, tech experts, educators, and researchers have developed learning modules and curriculum materials to support library staff. Handouts and slideshows can be adapted for trainings in any type of library, and on the Data Privacy Project website people can view a historical timeline, data flows diagrams, and a risk assessment exercise with sample patron profiles. All our training material is available under a Share Alike 4.0 Creative Commons license.
