Please join us tomorrow, Tuesday, January 10, at 2 and 8 pm ET for our first #DLFteach of the year. This month's chat is hosted by the Digital Library Pedagogy Group project leaders, and the discussion will center around how librarians, especially digital collections librarians, can (or should?) approach incorporating information privacy and security education into information literacy. You can find our suggested reading and the questions we’ll be discussing here [] and below.  


·         Q1 What is the most important thing for users of digital collections to understand about information privacy?

·         Q2 Are there best practices in information privacy/security education from your experience/perspective? What are they?

·         Q3 How do you address information privacy and security in your instruction?

·         Q4 Does your library’s info lit program have a goal related to privacy/security? If yes, what is it? If not, do you think it should?

·         Q5 How does (or could) information privacy and security intersect with other topics of info lit at your institution?
