Personalization is a way to conveniently and quickly use online services. The only problem is that the more personalization you get, the less privacy you keep.
That’s why the most important thing is to find the right balance between personalization and privacy. Obviously, the best possible solution would be to go full steam towards personalization without losing a tiny bit of privacy.
EBSCO, an online resource center with research databases, e-journals, magazine subscriptions, and ebooks for libraries, has released an interesting infographic that takes a closer look at how to combine personalization and privacy to meet growing needs of library patrons.
The company suggest the privacy-first approach. It allows users to access information without fear and protects the library and its users from breaches of data.
Such an approach, besides complying with online standards (naming only GDPR), builds trust – and it’s where libraries can be seen as a trusted source of information for all.
EBSCO lists a few ways libraries can leverage privacy-first personalization:
Enable patrons to create personalized accounts at their discretion
Automate the ability for users to delete personal accounts and have their account data forgotten
Comply with privacy standards and share this message with your users

Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
The real problem is not whether machines think but whether men do.
