Hi folks,

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.
