This session will explore protections for patron privacy, and the challenges to them from contemporary library systems and practices. In particular, we will discuss how patron privacy is enshrined in librarianship’s professional values, how it is managed in our institutional policies, and protected in law. We’ll examine the impact of the software we use and the licenses we sign on traditional notions of patron privacy.

We’ll provide context for this conversation with examples of the challenges we’ve grappled with at the University of Minnesota Libraries, and describe some of the best practices we’ve implemented.
