claimed that the unexamined life is not worth living. Were he alive today he
might marvel at the opportunities for reflection and action provided by social
media, smart phone applications, and digital devices that expose, map, measure
and monitor everything from friendships to personal health, to environmental
exposure, driving performance, energy consumption, and relationships.
There are compelling personal and social benefits to be gained from the technology
and the growing sea of data it generates, but as the summer of Snowden all too
starkly illustrated U.S. law has tethered individual privacy to the home and
personal devices while technology innovation has moved our data to the clouds,
platforms, and networks owned and operated by the private sector. This
session will discuss some of the pressing privacy challenges presented by
social media and smart phone platforms, connected devices, and cloud storage.
“Different” Karen Coyle, Library Digital Consultant, Berkeley,
experience the rapid growth in online data due to the Internet and the
increasingly widespread use of databases. Karen Coyle, who is a digital library
consultant and worked for more than 20 years at the University of California
Digital Library, Berkeley, will address the value of thinking differently about
common library practices. Library metadata methods were not designed to coexist
with new types of data, such as that of computer processing. Ms. Coyle advises
that by thinking differently about catalog metadata, librarians can change the
idea that library catalogs are limited to directing patrons to the locations of
print or electronic titles. Librarians can transform “the library’s public
catalog from a stand-alone database of bibliographic records to a highly
hyper-linked data set that can interact with information resources on the World
Wide Web.” Thinking differently will expand what the catalog offers by moving
from organizing titles to providing knowledge discovery. In this way, the
library catalog has the ability to answer questions, not just give a list of

Interests Drive the Creation of New Laws? Laurel Rosenhall,
Sacramento Bee Capitol Bureau Consultant.
In 2012, the membership
of NOCALL and the other California chapters played an active role in promoting
the enactment of the Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act. In UELMA’s
case, it was clear who sponsored the bill and what groups were promoting
it. California sponsors are sometimes listed in the legislative analysis
of many of its bills, but there is no rule requiring that. Laurel
Rosenhall, the Sacramento Bee Capitol Bureau Consultant, will
illustrate how the forces behind Federal and state legislation are not always
evident and are often masked. In some cases, lobbyists will research issues,
draft the bill language, and line up people to testify at hearings.
Ms. Rosenhall’s presentation will demonstrate how at times the public’s right
to know can lose out to politics when a lawmaker signs onto a bill that has
been drafted by its sponsoring interest group.

have a constitutionally-guaranteed right to privacy, and protecting their
privacy rights is one of the California Attorney General's top
priorities. Information about us that institutions hold, such as credit
card and bank account numbers, health care data, and other elements that must
be kept private, is potentially at risk. The recent Target credit card
breach is an example of such dangers. This program will provide an
overview to the Privacy Enforcement and Protection Unit, including who they are
and what the AG’s Privacy Enforcement Unit does to protect Californians'
