Module 5: Transparency & Privacy


In Module 5, we’ll consider the advantages of cultivating a transparent library and professional ethos, while addressing the inherent issues of privacy when doing so.  What does a transparent library/librarian look like, and what are the real, tangible advantages?  Of the multitude of approaches to privacy, which ones are relevant and useful to help us find an optimal flow of information?

Your primary lecturer for this week will be Kyle Jones (@kyle) and Michael Stephens (@michael).
