Scope Creep: Privacy During Lockdown

May 26, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

As society moved into lockdown, everyone who could do so collectively turned to online platforms like Zoom for our social sustenance. We flocked to Libby and OverDrive for access to ebooks and audiobooks. And, of course, we spent our shopping money on Amazon. How has the safety and protection of our data privacy changed in this new environment?

Join us on Tuesday, May 26 to discuss the changes in privacy that have accompanied a massive shift to the internet for nearly every aspect of our lives. Erin Berman, Bill Marden, Gary Price will talk about the challenges to privacy that come with “the new normal” and how digital providers–both large and small–have come under increased scrutiny as libraries and their patrons are impacted by the closure of physical facilities while increasing the use of online services.
