From her recent testimony to the U.S. Congress to the publication of her book, Data Cartels, Sarah Lamdan’s work has significantly broadened awareness of the evolution of library vendors into surveillance businesses focused on controlling and monetizing data. Join us on Tuesday, February 14th, at 12pm ET / 9am PT for a discussion with Sarah about this evolution and the risks it poses to users, libraries, and the future of knowledge sharing. The conversation will also touch on opportunities to take action to address these privacy threats, including through SPARC’s Privacy & Surveillance Community of Practice.
Note: This call is open to those working in libraries and academic institutions rather than vendors, who are asked to respect the purpose of these calls for candid discussion.
