Hello world, you're invited to this webinar from Canada.
[Digital Privacy] Add-ons for Privacy: Open Source Advocacy Tactics for Internet Health Abstract:
Privacy is a topic of growing interest in academic libraries and beyond. Karen is currently completing interviews with 30 developers of open source privacy add-ons for web browsers (e.g. educational tools about online advertising, VPN tool suites, etc.). She will share lessons learned about the advocacy tactics utilized in privacy add-on development and extend to consider issues related to patron privacy in academic library settings. This will be of interest to librarians teaching information literacy to students, web librarians developing library systems, and collections librarians concerned with procuring web resources
