The Library Digital Privacy Pledge

We’re excited to announce a new Library Freedom Project initiative, the Library Digital Privacy Pledge. Together with Eric Hellman (of Gluejar/Free Ebook Foundation/GITenberg/general notoriety in the library world), we’re asking libraries and vendors to help protect reader privacy by moving their services to HTTPS. I’ve written about why this matters, and EFF’s Jacob Hoffman-Andrews has done an even better job making the case. For even more info on the what, why, and how of this pledge, check out our FAQ. We’ve already got some amazing charter libraries and vendors signed on, and we’re hoping that many more will follow suit. Join us in protecting patron privacy by emailing pledge(at)libraryfreedomproject(dot)org!
