Privacy & WI Public Libraries Tutorials for Frontline Staff & Managers - On-Demand Training
Library workers now have access to a tutorial to better understand the reasons behind privacy policies and laws, as well as how to effectively interact with library users about privacy. Specific attention is given to Wisconsin laws. The tutorials include three modules, each consisting of a short (8-9 minute) video, links to additional reading, and a short quiz. Library directors and managers can access a short tutorial with suggestions for working with staff, creating policies, and other administrative tasks related to protecting patron privacy.
These tutorials were created by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s iSchool, and are sponsored by Wisconsin Public Library Systems with support from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s Public Instruction, with funding from the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
