This session explores the often unforeseen challenges and issues that can arise with the creation and management of digital collections in regards to access and privacy. We will address incorporating a privacy review into production workflows that can embed privacy considerations into practice and offer possible solutions and creative ways in which two academic institutions have helped it’s students, faculty and researchers maintain their privacy. We will share examples of subpoenas, plagiarized content, take-down notices, awkward responses from contacted alumni, and the challenge of dealing with victims of violence. This session will share some lessons learned along with recommendations of addressing privacy before publication and dissemination. Our hope is to engender a discussion and provide a framework of best practices based on examples and discussion from the presenters and attendees, and also provide some resources to consult.
