Presentation 1
No Such Thing as a Free Lunch: Google Analytics and User Privacy
Patron privacy is sometimes the price we pay for free services. This trade-off is part of Google Analytics, the free web tracking tool. This session shares research into analytics implementations of DLF institutions, discusses relevant privacy issues, and offers recommendations for enhancing users’ web traffic privacy through configuration and education.
Presenters: Scott Young, Patrick OBrien

Presentation 2
Uprooting (Biological) Kinship in Genealogical Data: A case study in ontology development for justice work
Genealogy in the US relies on an archival record structured by race, class, gender, and legal status. This paper explores the theoretical and practical matters attendant to developing an ontology for genealogical data, and reflects on the limits and dangers of exposing personal data to more robust information processing technologies.
Presenter: Scout Calvert

Presentation 3
Open Licenses: The Dark Side
Open licenses are great! Many project funders increasingly encourage or require them. However, they create some new challenges, both for digitizing existing collections, and when partnering to create new digital content – particularly with indigenous or marginalized communities. We’ll explore these issues with examples from specific digital projects.
Presenters: Nancy Sims, Jason Roy
