Privacy is a core principle of librarianship, but it’s most often not included in academic librarian position descriptions, nor in MLIS curriculum as a focus, leaving librarians to find professional development opportunities and/or use their personal time to fill this gap.
This is a problem as the recent pandemic forced educators to choose online learning platforms and tools without always assessing privacy and data collection policies, making it necessary for librarians to become privacy advocates within their institutions.
Marisol Moreno Ortiz covers how higher education librarians and other professionals can learn about privacy and surveillance, why privacy and surveillance should become a focus of a librarian’s duties, and how to implement such inclusion in their institution.
