Patron Privacy & Risk – Worst Cases and Preparations

Surveys show that libraries are among the most trusted of all social institutions…trusted above all other government agencies. Our professional ethics insist that we protect the information seeking of our patrons. Are we living up to our ethics in our everyday actions and services? What are the risks inherent in our current systems and services? ” How can libraries proactively  help all immigrants, regardless of status?” Join Jason Griffey for an examination of these risks and  suggestions on how libraries can be ready to react to threats.

Jason will be joining via Skype.
Following Jason’s talk, Cheryl Keshner from Empire Justice Center and Martha Maffei from SEPA Mujer will highlight the concerns of our immigrant community and answer questions.
