Private Thoughts – Alison Macrina on Libraries Protecting Intellectual Freedom

 

In this episode of Private thoughts we met up with Alison Macrina on the second day of Digital Rights in Libraries at Noisebridge in San Francisco. Librarians have protected patrons’ rights to read, write and research freely since the 1930s and are taking new steps in the Post Snowden era to protect patrons from government surveillance. We also discussed the distribution of surveillance and how some people are effected much more than others. Alison is the Director of the Library Freedom Project which provides privacy education and training at libraries across the country.
