As online learning has become the new normal for students, educators, and librarians, it is important to consider the implications of such a shift. One area that has not been discussed extensively is privacy awareness measures and privacy literacy. More people are spending time with their devices and computers to access online content than ever before. Online platforms such as Zoom and Google Hangouts may be helpful ways to stay engaged with others during this time. However, there are still surveillance and data tracking using many of these resources. It becomes critical for educators and librarians to be familiar with privacy awareness and advocacy tools. This session will cover how a librarian is introducing privacy literacy to graduate students as part of an information literacy program during the pandemic. In addition, the presenter will share important and relevant resources and tools to safeguard library users’ security and privacy rights.
