Preparing Libraries for the 2020 Census: Digital Security, Privacy and Access
Free webinar hosted by New York State Library
Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at 3:00 pm
Digital access to the 2020 Census at New York’s public libraries will be a major factor in achieving a fair and accurate count in New York State. The 2020 Census is less than a year away, but, so far, public discussion about the Census has not been focused on preparing libraries for the digital security, privacy or access implications of a digital census. To build capacity and technical support at libraries, and to ensure that libraries are able to preserve patron privacy during the digital census, the Digital Equity Laboratory at the New School has made tools available to help libraries implement best digital security practices for the 2020 Census.
Our co-director Greta Byrum will be joining Jeffrey Lambert (Queens Public Library) and Lauren Moore (Pioneer Library System) to provide an overview of the available tools and show how libraries can start preparing now for the 2020 Census.
The event is free but registration is required.
