Subject: [CODE4LIB] GDPR and your library website
Is anyone making changes to your library website, sub-sites, or other digital platforms in order to comply with GDPR regulations?
Bonus: if so, are you also working to increase users' awareness of how their data is collected and used across the library, not just on the web?
We're mulling a few options here. Our university-level IT group plans to launch a web click-through page before users from the EU can proceed to institutional websites, but our library servers don't fall under their control for this change.
I think this could be an opportunity for us to increase privacy awareness for all our users, rather than just EU visitors, and I've seen a few non-library websites present this info to everyone in a way that isn't obtrusive or alarming. But, I haven't gotten a sense of whether this is something other library folks are considering as well.
Thanks for anything you've got to share.
