As more of our information becomes available online we are faced with a shift in the definition of privacy. More than ever before people are wondering how to share their information safely and how what they post is being used by big companies and advertisers. Libraries, as a trusted source of non-biased information, are poised to provide privacy education to their patrons and create a privacy literate society; empowering people to take control over their information.

Participants attending this workshop, will leave with a better understanding of the current privacy landscape and how information is being used and shared online. We will begin with a thoughtful discussion about privacy needs, how they differ from person to person, and how to safely create a personalized online identity. Participants will also leave with a prototype for a service or tool that can be refined and implemented at their library. Please bring a laptop or other internet connected device. 

The session is organized by Erin Berman, Project Manager for Technology and Innovation at San Jose Public Library. She has driven many technology related programs including the Library’s mini maker event, circulating technology kits, hosting weekly afterschool maker workshops for local elementary students, and many other innovative initiatives. Ms. Berman was chosen as one of the American Library Association’s (ALA) Emerging Leaders in 2014 and is currently the Chair of the Fundraising Committee for the ALA’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Round Table and serves as the Bay Area Networking Mixer Representative for the ALA’s New Members Round Table.
