Are You Going to Tell My Parents?
The Minor's Right to Privacy in the Library
In the United States, minors possess First
Amendment rights, which traditionally includes the right to read and receive information anonymously. This means minors have a
right to privacy and confidentiality in what
they read and view in the library. But for
school and public libraries, this has often
been a contentious issue. Is a minor mature
and responsible enough to have a library
card? Should we give parents access to their
child's library record so they can pay a fine?
Should libraries record and share a minors'
internet browsing habit with their parents?
Does a 5-year-old have the same right to privacy as a 14-year-old? And how does Child
Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and
the Family Educational Rights and Privacy

Beyond Books
People learn and experience life in
a wide variety of ways; not only with
books. Librarians engage and educate
their communities using displays and
programs. Just as books can be censored, displays, programs and other
and services
come under
fire. While
the profession is wellversed in
the right to
read books,
many libraries lack
policies and experience in protecting
the right to access information and
services beyond books, often in the
form of content created by their staff.
During this hour, three librarians
will share their experience of challenges to non-book resources.  Join
us on Sunday, June 23 from 10:30
- 11:30 a.m.

Act (FERPA) impact how libraries deal with
minors' privacy?
A panel of experts (Deborah CaldwellStone, interim director, ALA Office for
Intellectual Freedom; Helen Adams, senior
online lecturer, Antioch University-Seattle,
WI; and Candice (Wing-yee) Mack, managing librarian, systemwide teen services,
Los Angeles Public Library), summarize the
laws and ethical statements applicable to
minors' privacy rights, and explore positive
and proactive ways that libraries can protect
minors' privacy and confidentiality. Panelists
will discuss state and federal laws impacting
minors' privacy, including the Child Online
Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

(FERPA). Following this introduction to
minors' privacy, school and public librarians
will each speak about different approaches,
policies, and procedures they use to protect
minors' privacy. The panel will focus on ways
to address the issues librarians face in crafting policy, procedures, and guidelines that
preserve minors' privacy.
Following the panel comments, the audience will have an opportunity to ask all three
panel experts questions and discuss ideas
for protecting minors' privacy. At the end
of the session, attendees will receive a list of
practical privacy resources to utilize in their
home libraries, to further explore the topic
of privacy, and to reference when writing
policies that include minors' privacy rights.

Guardians of the
(Financial) Galaxy:
How Financial
Regulators Generate
Free Data, Tools,
and Information
Along the Way
Computers have brought in a dynamic access to data and information.
In the finance world, there are over 10
financial agencies and federal watchdog groups committed to protecting
consumers in the fast-moving realm
of financial technology, also known as
Fintech. Consumers today have ever
greater options to store, share, and
spend money with the aid of new technologies entering the market at breakneck speed. These emerging financial
technologies can empower consumers
by providing greater financial choices
and unprecedented convenience. At
the same time, companies offering
these exciting new products must
keep in mind important consumer
protection principles as they continue
to innovate for consumer's benefit.
Based in Washington, DC each
regulator does something unique in
service to public officials and other
American citizens. Who are these
agencies? What do they do? What
output do they generate that will be of
interest and use to patrons of business,
economic, policy, and government
librarians? This output is in the public
domain and available to be used in the
financial technology (FinTech) world.
This RUSA pre-conference on
Friday, June 21 from 8:30 a.m. - 4:00
p.m., will take representatives from
the three-natural group of agencies
and have a librarian lead a discussion
that will focus on:
ƒ Who do they regulate?
ƒ What role do they have in protecting citizens?
ƒ What do you wish people understood about your agency?
ƒ How do you work with libraries?
ƒ What resources do you make
available for free and for a fee?
Don't miss an opportunity to hear
directly from representatives!
This preconference is being generously co-sponsored by the  Center
for Financial Markets and Policy
at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business  and
the ALA's  Government Documents
Round Table.
