This workshop is available to all library staff including librarians, assistants and volunteers, archivists and other information professionals who work in public, academic or specialist libraries.
Libraries are a key resource for everyone: a repository of ideas, creativity, and diverse and challenging voices. They are also vital to their community, offering training and shared spaces in which users can learn, express themselves, and explore the world.
As part of Scottish PEN’s campaign to protect free expression in the digital age, we are excited to announce a workshop that will help libraries support users in strengthening their online privacy. This workshop has been developed in partnership with the Library Freedom Project, and is supported by CILIPS.
The aims of the workshop are to:
Because of the limited number of spaces available, we would ask that each participating library send a maximum of 2 delegates to participate in the workshop. This will ensure that we are able to offer this training to as many libraries as possible.
Please bring a laptop so you can take full advantage of the hands-on training provided.
