A new website supported by an IMLS grant has launched with the intent to assist librarians with digital privacy and data literacy skills.

Frontline staff at organizations that teach digital literacy and offer public Internet access require better preparation and instruction in fielding questions and quelling data privacy concerns from users.

Through the support of an IMLS grant, a group of locally and nationally based organizations partnered to develop a hands-on professional training program on data and privacy literacy in hopes of showing how this knowledge can positively impact their service to library patrons.


The website http://www.dataprivacyproject.org/(link is external)<http://www.dataprivacyproject.org/> includes a timeline, interactive features, and videos to translate the curriculum into digital resources covering historical moments and how data flows online. In the coming months, the site will include content from our second workshop, including a facilitator's guide, so others can conduct similar trainings. Thanks to support from the Knight Foundation(link is external)<http://www.knightfoundation.org/grants/201551216/>, the site will also feature a prototype of a networking platform that aims to enhance digital privacy and security, utilizing each other's skills.
