Protecting Your Privacy? Go to the Library! IFLA Attends RightsCon 2017

IFLA - პარ, 05/05/2017 - 21:34

Libraries have always worked to help people navigate the information environment. In a digital world, this means not only helping people to find information, but to do so critically and safely. In this context, privacy is vital, and libraries must not only guarantee this in their own work with users, but can play an active role in developing behaviours and knowledge in their communities.

 

RightsCon is a major annual conference organised by Access Now, an international organisation working to defend and extend the rights of digital users around the world.  This year it was held in Brussels.

With 20 subject tracks running over three days the conference covered a huge amount of ground from algorithmic accountability and transparency, to fake news and privacy.

For the first time IFLA attended, organising a session entitled “Privacy for Everyone: Using Libraries to Promote Digital Privacy”. There were four excellent speakers who prompted a lively discussion for an audience which generally had not did not really considered the role of libraries and citizen online privacy.

Damien Belvèze from the Université de Rennes who talked about the why, how and what of organising cryptoparties in libraries.  Peter Krantz of the National Library of Sweden described the ongoing development of a privacy checklist (available, in draft, in Swedish and English) which has been developed for librarians. 

Seeta Peña Gangadharan from the London School of Economics talked about her work training librarians in New York and Brooklyn libraries to train the public in privacy matters, and Diego Naranjo from EDRi presented the Digital Defenders booklet.  This is designed to help young people aged 10 – 14 years to protect their privacy and is intended as a teaching tool.  It is available online.

Exciting IFLA Global Vision journey around the world starts with Regional Workshop in North America

IFLA - ხუთ, 04/05/2017 - 15:54

The first regional workshop of IFLA’s inclusive and high-level Global Vision discussion started on 3 May 2017 at the iconic Library of Congress (LoC) in Washington D.C., United States. For the first time, major representatives from different types of libraries from Canada and the US were gathered by IFLA for two days to discuss how a united library field can tackle the challenges of the future. During the opening, Robert Newlen, Deputy Librarian of Congress, remarked: “It is a great honour for the Library of Congress to host this workshop. LoC will always support IFLA’s activities.”

IFLA believes that creating a global vision for a united and connected library field will help meet the challenges of the future, while achieving one of the true potentials of libraries: to build literate, informed and participative societies. IFLA President Donna Scheeder confirms this: “Indeed, my travels as IFLA President reveal there is excellent work going on all around the world, but in many places this is happening in isolation. What is clear is that the issues libraries face today require individual commitment to a joint response in order to successfully achieve a joint vision. Today we begin a very important journey.”

For the first time, IFLA’s Global Vision is bringing together thousands of librarians around the world through face-to-face and online interactive participation to explore libraries’ future opportunities and challenges. The engagement of the library field has never been more present in IFLA’s activities.

Gerald Leitner, IFLA Secretary General, strongly argues: “How to tackle the challenges? Some people think the solution is to build walls. We think the solution is to break down walls: To break down walls in our minds and to break down walls between libraries to improve people’s lives. Therefore, IFLA convenes the library field to develop a global vision for the future of libraries that only a strong and connected library field can achieve.”
