    The Intellectual Freedom Committee's Privacy Subcommittee is seeking new members! If you have an interest in privacy, fill out an application by June 10th. Here are some of the things that the Subcommittee has done over the last four years:
    • Added Article VII to the Library Bill of Rights
    • Passed the Resolution on Forming a Working Group to Align Vendor Privacy Policies with ALA Policies and Ethics
    • Passed the Resolution on the Misuse of Behavioral Data Surveillance in Libraries 
    • Revamped the privacy resource pages on the ALA homepage
    • Created the new Privacy Field Guides
    • Updated the Privacy Guidelines and Checklists
    • Quickly responded to library privacy issues e.g., COVID-19 pandemic, LinkedIn Learning
    • Organized presentations and conferences, virtual webinars, and workshops
