Protection of privacy in the library environment (DRAFT)
v0.1 (roughly google translated from swedish - sorry for poor english).
Libraries should work for the democratic development of society by contributing to the dissemination of knowledge and freedom of opinion. This means that access to the internet is an important service to provide to visitors of the libraries. However, it does not mean that visitors should be able to do what they want with library equipment or access other visitor's information. Patrons should trust that their use of library services do not infringe on their privacy.
This document is a first draft of a checklist aimed at reducing the risk of intrusion into the visitors' privacy when using digital services in a library environment. The checklist is not exhaustive. The idea is that a librarian can use the checklist to get a basic idea of a library´s protection of patron privacy. This should be used in discussion with colleague
