It is one thing to talk about libraries and information centers as places of privacy and intellectual freedom - but do we connect these notions explicitly to digital literacy? The aim of my presentation is to discuss frankly how information is read in computers, how special librarians can better educate themselves and the folks they serve (not matter the organization or institution) in the area of digital privacy so each person can take their knowledge beyond just content into the realm of digital context. This aim brings together the purely service-orientation of information professionals with professional development by embracing a more current model of lifelong learning. The result more fully integrates the librarian’s own use of digital tools and their training others to use them by detailing a few practices in the browser, with network connections (both wired and WiFi), and a few more complex software based solutions that simultaneously provide better privacy and educate each person about using digital tools more intentionally – even mindfully
