Two new resources for privacy and internet safety

Filed under: Programs & Resources — vtdeptlib @ 7:23 am

Concerned about guarding patron privacy? Check out the American Library Association’s “Privacy Tool Kit” at http://www.ala.org/ala/oif/iftoolkits/toolkitsprivacy/privacy.htm. You’ll find guidelines for developing a privacy policy, suggested procedures to follow, talking points for the public, and a whole lot more.

Looking for information for kids and parents on internet safety? The Illinois Library Association and MySpace.com have put together three bookmarks that anyone may download and copy freely. Designed as a series to help educate youth and parents to make safe and informed decisions online, each bookmark is aimed at a specific audience including kids, teens, and parents. Topics include: Dealing with Cyberbullies (for kids), Safe Blogging (for teens), and Social Networking (for parents). Check them out at http://www.ila.org/netsafe/index.htm. The bookmarks are also available in packs of 100 for $8 per pack at the website which also offers some excellent links for more information on internet safety.
