Internet Privacy for Library Patrons Workshop with Alison Macrina, Presenter, Kade Crockford, Devon Chaffee, and Gilles Bissonnette – Co-Presenters
Friday, January 16th from 1-4pm @ the Hooksett Library

FBI

Alison Macrina, will facilitate a free workshop, co-hosted by the Hooksett Library and NHLA-ITS, on how to promote internet privacy for patrons using our libraries.

Alison is an IT librarian at the Watertown Free Public Library in Massachusetts and patron privacy specialist. She has been conducting patron privacy workshops in conjunction with the ACLU throughout the Northeast. She has also been teaching patron computer classes about online privacy and has organized a series of workshops for Massachusetts librarians to get up to speed on the ins and outs of digital surveillance.

Also presenting will be:

Kade Crockford, ACLU of Massachusetts:  An introduction to current issues of surveillance and privacy, focusing on government and corporate surveillance. Kade will address how privacy rights fit into the greater mission of libraries as democratic institutions committed to intellectual freedom, and how surveillance threatens the core values of librarianship defined by the ALA Library Bill of Rights.

Devon Chaffee and Gilles Bissonnette, ACLU of New Hampshire: A privacy rights primer for librarians covering federal, state, and local laws, and including tips on what to do in real-life library situations where privacy rights are threatened (eg receipt of a National Security Letter, police demanding search or seizure of library computers, etc).

Intended for all library personnel, including Directors, Library assistants and even pages, this workshop will take place on Friday, January 16th, from 1-4pm @ the Hooksett Library.
