Data Ethics and Library Assessment

Libraries often advocate for intellectual freedoms, patron’s rights and patron anonymity. But in order to understand users and demonstrate value, we need to collect and analyze data about our patrons. All too often these competing priorities lead to inconsistent methods of data collection, no transparency, and a lack of understanding about the ethical use and handling of data. This presentation will introduce a way to systematically enhance ethical assessment through the adaptation of a data science ethics tool. It will provide examples of issues that arise in the areas of data collection, data storage, analysis, modeling, and deployment.
