Law Library Websites and Third Party Trackers: A Privacy Study

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Librarians are known for protecting the privacy of their patrons, but  with the shift to online resources, third parties  regularly collect data on  library patrons' use of library materials, using this data to target patrons  for advertising  around the web.
This program will present original research about third party tracking  on law school library websites. We'll identify who is  surveilling patrons and how, discuss the practical and ethical effects  of this loss of patron anonymity, and present strategies (where possible)  for curbing third-party tracking of library  patrons.
