*Exciting Speakers Featured in NISO’s Upcoming Virtual Conference!*

*Information Freedom, Ethics and Integrity

*Wednesday, April 18, 11:00am - 5:00pm (Eastern Daylight)*

This is a six-hour event addressing some of the very sensitive issues
associated with patron privacy, appropriate use of data, information
security in library IT, and the challenges associated in designing digital
environments that accommodate those concerns.

*NISO’s registration fee allows your organization to gather an unlimited
number of staff in a conference or classroom setting to view the event on
the day of the broadcast. Access to an archived recording of the event is
always included in your registration fee, regardless of membership status.*

Here’s what just *some* of our speakers will be addressing:

*11:45 - 12:15 p.m.  Data Collection and Privacy in Library and Learning
Management Systems*

*Emily Lynema*, Acting Department Head, Information Technology, North
Carolina State University Libraries

This talk will provide an overview of the data that might be collected and
analyzed from library and learning management systems, including the types
of user data that could potentially be considered sensitive or
confidential. It will frame the ethical questions around data privacy in
the context of the growing movement toward learning analytics for student
success in institutions of higher education. The talk will identify several
different approaches to data collection and will highlight policy decisions
that should be considered when planning a data analytics project.

This talk will emphasize concrete case studies from institutions that have
collected and analyzed specific data from library or learning management
systems to assist in assessment activities and to demonstrate the value of
libraries within their broader community. These case studies demonstrate
ways that libraries can work to leverage user data while simultaneously
taking proactive steps to protect user privacy.

*1:45 - 2:15 p.m.  Information Security and Library IT *

*Denis Galvin*, Director of Library Technology, Fondren Library, Rice

The library IT department frequently interacts with both Central IT and
industry providers regarding security concerns and problems. A range of
issues can occur which impact access to systems and resources. The library
must protect itself from security threats, and also has to maintain some
level of protection for content providers while providing access to members
of the community. Security and authentication are issues which need to be
dealt with through the institution, the library IT department and industry
providers. In this complex environment what are things we can do today to
protect both libraries and content providers? What should we be doing today
to better prepare for tomorrow?

*2:15 - 2:45 p.m. The Right to be Forgotten and Digital Collections:
Surveying Practice and Policy at ARL Member Institutions*

 *Virginia Dressler*, Digital Projects Librarian, Assistant Professor, Kent
State University and *Cynthia Kristof*, Head, Copyright and Document
Services, Associate Professor, Kent State University.

In the spring of 2017, digital librarians at Association of Research
Libraries (ARL) member institutions were surveyed on practices and policies
surrounding takedown requests in openly accessible digital collections. The
survey collected demographic information and also presented a series of
hypothetical scenarios for respondents to consider and reflect upon. The
survey received a 25.8% response rate, with many intriguing insights into
how practitioners consider these type of requests. Survey findings and
general background on the topic of the right to be forgotten will be
presented, along with a discussion on future recommendations for work in
this area.

*3:30 - 4:00  p.m. Experiments in Digital Privacy Education*

*Clifford Anderson*, Associate University Librarian for Research and
Learning, Vanderbilt University

How can librarians effectively teach patrons about digital privacy? How
does instruction about digital privacy fit within a scholarly
communications program? In the fall 2017, the Vanderbilt University Library
experimented with a three-part series on digital privacy, covering the
concepts of encrypting communications, browsing the web anonymously, and
keeping operating systems secure. In his session, we will reflect on the
success of the program, its limitations, and how we plan to refine our
privacy outreach to students in the future.

*4:00 - 4:30 p.m. Designing for Privacy*

*Skott Klebe*, Platform Security Architect, EBSCO

Abstract (Speaker Supplied): Developing rich and capable applications that
respect user privacy requires special attention. We'll discuss technical
privacy challenges in general and investigate one case in detail. Overall,
the key to respecting privacy is prioritizing it as a requirement.
