Current Issues Panel Discussion – Privacy Literacy

A virtual panel discussion on privacy literacy moderated by Alexandria Chisholm and Sarah Hartman-Caverly of Pennsylvania State University with panelists Symphony Bruce of American University, Claire Lobdell of Greenfield Community College, and Andrew Wesolek of Vanderbilt University on Friday, December 4 at 2pm EST/11am PST. 

With growing social justice issues related to algorithmic bias and the disparate impact of surveillance, it is more important than ever for librarians to assume leadership in advocating for and educating about privacy literacy (PL). Participants will gain working knowledge of contemporary privacy challenges and solutions to build professional self-efficacy, access the moderators’ PL toolkit featuring resources to develop future PL programming, and leave inspired to lead PL education and advocacy initiatives.  

This webinar is free and open to all. A recording will be made available after the session.

Inclusion zone: A case study in digital accessibility

When: December 04 2020 – 14:00 to December 04 2020 – 15:00
Where: Online- United Kingdom

It’s hard to imagine our life without digital technology – at the click of a mouse or touch of a screen, the world is at our fingertips – that is, if you can control a mouse… and see the screen… and hear the audio.

This session will explore what a university press and a library are doing to support the needs of all researchers regardless of their ability. How do students with disabilities access and read academic research materials – what tools do they use and what challenges do they face? How can a publisher incorporate digital accessibility into everyday processes? How does a library help patrons with accessibility requirements?

Presenters:
  • James Carr: Programme Manager, Cambridge University Press
  • Beverley Delaney: E-Content Advisor, Open University
  • Julie Elsden: Front End Developer, Cambridge University Press
  • Khadija Raza: Graduate, Royal Holloway University

This is a free webinar and is open to members and non-members of UKSG alike – Please note that advance registration is required.
