#PatronPrivacy in #DigitalLibrary and Information Systems by NISO

niso 1

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded the National Information Standards Organization a grant to develop a Consensus Framework to Support Patron Privacy in Digital Library and Information Systems. The grant will support a series of community discussions on how libraries, publishers and information systems providers can build better privacy protection into their operations and the subsequent formulation of a framework document on the privacy of patron data in these systems.

Further background is described below. During summer 2015, the NISO project completed all four virtual meetings which helped provide input to an in-person meeting held in late June in San Francisco; further conference calls were held into the fall to finalize the Principles.
