As content moves into digital systems and increasingly onto the cloud, we need to recognize that those systems are constantly tracking reader behavior and interactions with that content. That does not mean, however, that we should be checking patron's privacy at the door. In 2015, NISO launched an initiative to develop a consensus framework for patron privacy in libraries, publishers and information systems. Building on decades of advocacy in the library community, the NISO project aims to take a practical approach to how publishers, libraries and vendors can balance the expectations of privacy and the value that can be derived from applying usage information to improving services. A series of discussions culminated in an in-person meeting in San Francisco during which a draft framework was agreed. This talk will outline that resulting framework and encourage its adoption within the community.
