Description

Target Audience

This half day hands-on workshop is aimed at library and IT support staff and volunteers in public, academic, school and specialist libraries. No specialist technical ability is required to participate but you should bring your own device.

Summary

This practical workshop, developed in partnership with the Library Freedom Project, and supported by CILIPS and SLIC is being offered as part of Scottish PEN’s campaign to protect free expression in the digital age.

By the end of the workshop participants will:

  • Have an understanding of the legal implications of the Investigatory Powers Act for library services;

  • Have discussed privacy rights and responsibilities in the context of library and information services

  • Be familiar with a range of digital tools that can be used to protect privacy;

  • Have tested and tried a range of free cybersecurity tools and services;

  • Have considered how to incorporate their learning into digital literacy training for library service users


There will be extra time available for those who have follow up questions.
