Dear DLF community,


In advance of the DLF Forum, we are very happy to announce that the Professional Research Ethics subgroup of the Technologies of Surveillance Working Group has produced an Ethics Explainer and Glossary document, available at


This group, led by Dorothea Salo, recognized the need for a framing document for those doing research in/on libraries and with library-produced data. We expect this document will provide guidance and information for a variety of individuals interested in using library-produced data for research and/or program improvement.


Please share widely with your colleagues and join us in thanking the authors of this document, as well as those who have been involved in the Working Group!
