ACRL Springboard Event

The third annual ACRL Springboard Event was held on May 5, 2010.  The 2010 ACRL Springboard Event featured John Palfrey, Henry N. Ess III Professor of Law, Vice Dean, Library and Information Resources, Harvard Law School, and Faculty Co-Director, Berkman Center for Internet & Society, and co-author of "Born Digital: Understanding the First Generation of Digital Natives."

Offered in conjunction with the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom's inaugural " Choose Privacy Week", May 2-8, 2010, the 2010 ACRL Springboard Event examined issues related to privacy in the socially networked environment. 

ACRL knows that professional development is important to our members, and in these tough economic times, we were pleased to offer this free annual program to “thank you” for your participation in ACRL.  The archived recording is available below.
