This workshop’s goal is to teach librarians, as well as interested faculty, staff and students about the current state of digital surveillance, our privacy rights, and technology tools that can better protect online privacy, so that they may teach this information to the public. The following topics will be covered, with time for a Q&A:
Practical tools to protect patron privacy with tools including:
• Tor browsers
• Tails (the anonymous, encrypted, live operating system that lives on a USB stick and can get plugged in to any computer)
• HTTPS Everywhere and TLS/SSL on library websites
• Safe and private searches with DuckDuckGo
• Blocking cookies and advertisements (and the malware that comes with them) with AdBlockPlus and Privacy Badger
• Tips for dealing with information requests like National Security Letters.
• A general primer on privacy rights relevant to library environments.
