This workshop will explore the role libraries play in patron health journeys, which includes the layout of our physical spaces, the way we handle sensitive documents, which resources we share, and more. Privacy advocate Tess Wilson will discuss practical approaches to patron support and ways we might teach patrons about their health data safety.
At the end of this session, attendees will be able to:
Identify points of vulnerability in interactions with patron health data
Share tips and tools with patrons to support their data privacy
Apply practical approaches to library spaces, policies, and procedures as a way to maximize privacy
This workshop is intended for any library worker with an interest in privacy.
