Patron Privacy Series for Texas Library Staff Begins February 9 | Library Developments

I am SO GLAD to see that we are going to start talking about patron privacy here in Texas! I have reached out to the Library Freedom Project to see about bringing them here for workshops, but haven’t gotten any interest from librarians. I hope this is the beginning of a long conversation… Looking forward to this series with Gretchen McCord.

via Patron Privacy Series for Texas Library Staff Begins February 9 | Library Developments.

A very special three-part webinar series on patron privacy for Texas library staff kicks off on February 9.

Patron Privacy – What Texas Library Staff Should Know

(For Texas Library Staff Only)

Are you confident in your ability to handle requests for patron information from authorities? When is the last time you had a refresher on Texas laws related to library records? Do you have questions regarding privacy and the online environment, employees, volunteers, or serving minors? The Texas State Library & Archives Commission invites Texas library staff to attend this very special Webinar series on privacy, presented by Texas attorney Gretchen McCord.

During this three part series, Gretchen will provide guidance and training focused on privacy in the areas of constitutional law, federal law, Texas state law, and application of the law and ethics. She will discuss how to minimize the risk related to privacy issues in the library, and will address frequently asked questions. Attendees will also have ample opportunity to ask questions of this noted privacy expert, so this is a webinar series that you do not want to miss!

About the presenter: Gretchen McCord is an attorney licensed by the State of Texas, specializing in privacy and copyright.  Gretchen provides legal advising and training in the areas of copyright law, privacy law, licensing, and other legal issues associated with digital information and social media.  With a total of over twenty years of experience as a lawyer and a higher education librarian, her practice (Digital Information Law) focuses on assisting educational institutions and libraries, small and mid-sized businesses, and non-profit organizations as they transition into the digital world.

Open Carry in Texas Public Libraries

Open Carry in Texas Public Libraries

Here in Texas starting January 1st, licensed gun carriers will be able to carry their handguns openly as long as the gun is secured. They will be prohibited from openly carrying in some places such as schools and private businesses. Personally, I am asking every business that I frequent if they will allow open carry so I can know whether or not I will continue to spend my money there. However, public libraries are public entities that must adhere to this law.

The Texas State Library and Archives has put together a great FAQ on Handguns in Texas Libraries that I wanted to share. Also, the Texas Municipal League has written a paper explaining state law and municipal authority over the regulation of “firearms” (e.g., rifles, shotguns, and handguns) in Texas. And the City of Dallas has put together this short video addressing frequent questions and listing violations of the law.

These resources might help answer many questions we will all have as we adjust to the changes ahead. I am interested to learn how this affects public libraries all over the state.

The ease of access to data collection tools (such as online surveys) means that data analysis is a good teachable skill that librarians can introduce to students for both school work and everyday life.
