Field Guides

The Institute of Museum and Library Services, in partnership with the American Library Association, has sponsored the creation of Privacy Field Guides. These guides contain practical, hands-on exercises for you to create a more privacy-focused library. They are designed for academic, public, and school libraries of all types.

Final guides will be available by the end of 2021. Check back here for the guides! There will be printable and interactive web versions available.
