LFP's Crash Courses
LFP's Crash Courses are free, privacy-focused two-month trainings for librarians to learn how to become privacy champions in their libraries.
In this Crash Course, we're focusing on privacy in library infrastructure. Topics will include: creating good privacy and data governance policies, conducting privacy audits, working with library IT, understanding vendor agreements from a privacy perspective, and more. It'll cover some technical stuff, but it's intended for library workers without a formal technical background or role.
March-May 2022 (previously held May-July 2021)
In this Crash Course, we're learning how to teach privacy to patrons, fellow staff, and other stakeholders. We'll cover some of the broader privacy landscape out in the world -- things like consumer technologies, police surveillance, artificial intelligence -- and discuss how the loss of privacy affects our communities. We'll learn how to run effective and interesting privacy programs for various audiences.
