Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

Privacy Week

This week marks the inaugural Choose Privacy Week, a celebration of our right to privacy and an opportunity to engage libraries, librarians, and the general public about the importance of this issue in our increasingly public world. Sponsored by the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom, Choose Privacy Week is made possible in part by a grant from the Open Society Institute.

To help kick off this week, they created a 20-minute video featuring Neil Gaiman, Cory Doctorow, ALA President Camila Alire, University of Chicago professor Geoffrey Stone, and others. It's a wonderful introduction to these issues, and a great way to kick off Choose Privacy Week.
