  • Introductions
    • Discussed where everyone is from and the status of their privacy policy work. Variety of library types. Most people are in the early stages of drafting their privacy policies (or policy templates).

Where we’re at

    • There aren’t a lot of models for good practices right now
  • Resources that exist
  • Things that don’t exist that we need
    • Good policies that we can use as a jumping off point
    • Explanatory document for templates to make it more user-friendly for others to put in place
    • Talking points/presentation to make to colleagues/boards/etc. that may have questions
    • Walkthrough on where to get started (what’s step one, where to go after that)
    • Regular meeting structure; time to get together on Zoom to work on policy together
  • What would be useful for group to do together going forward
    • Build a collaborative space of what we’re working on
    • Ability to sub in people from our individual working groups as needed to take part in working group
  • Things to document in the future
    • Unexpected hurdles on the path to a privacy policy (pushback, leadership issues, etc.)
