Library Patron Data and Privacy: Cycles and Strategies

February 4, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Colorado Department of Education - Colorado State Library Logo

In this interactive webinar, participants will explore the realm of library data privacy through the patron data lifecycle, from deciding what to collect and storing data to deciding who has access to data and deleting data in both physical and electronic formats. We will cover common library practices that put patron privacy at risk at each stage as well as strategies to mitigate risk to patron privacy. Participants will gain a better overall view of how patron data flows through the library and come back to their libraries with practical strategies in protecting the privacy of their patrons’ data.

Presented by: Becky Yoose, LDH Consulting Services

Becky has worked with library data flows at both large and small academic and public libraries, as well as with both proprietary and open source library applications and systems. Becky is also an accredited information privacy professional with the International Association of Privacy Professionals, which brings valuable knowledge of data privacy practices and regulations in the US into library practices. Becky is now a Library Data Privacy Consultant and owner of LDH Consulting Services.
