About This Resource

This guide was developed as a collaborative project between the Massachusetts Library System, Library Freedom Project, and the Massachusetts Library Association. It focuses on the privacy ramifications of current library technologies, educating library patrons on the importance of digital privacy, and resources on how to advocate for responsible legislation around digital privacy in Massachusetts.

Are you looking for training on digital privacy? Invite Library Freedom to your library, conference, and/or network for trainings on these various topics. Library Freedom's Privacy Advocates are located across the State and can train on a variety of privacy and surveillance issues.
