Licensing Privacy Project Webinar on Assessing Contracts Nov. 17 1:00 p.m. Central

Licensing Privacy is a Mellon Foundation grant-funded project based at the University of Illinois, the goal of which is to develop model language that would support libraries in advocating for user privacy when contracting for services and content and enable libraries to hold platforms accountable for their data practices. Their upcoming webinar will present a new tool they have designed, called the Vendor Contract and Policy Rubric, and discuss how libraries can use the rubric to evaluate how well vendor platforms follow library privacy guidelines, standards, and best practices. In addition, the webinar will discuss practical ways to use the rubric to advocate for privacy practices during contract negotiation. Speakers will be Becky Yoose of LDH Consulting Services and Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, Professor/Coordinator for Information Literacy Services and Instruction at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the principal investigator for the grant.
