The Center for Information Policy Research is collaborating with the ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom to provide a valuable and interesting learning opportunity for SOIS students.

The goal of the OIF is to educate librarians and the general public about the nature and importance of intellectual freedom in libraries. The student will work with Assistant Director of the OIF, Angela Maycock, on development and content population of the Privacy Revolution Web site (http://www.privacyrevolution.org/) and maintaining an active online presence, through Twitter, online events, and other online forums.

The suitable student will have strong communication skills, will be mature and self-directed, knowledgeable of web 2.0 tools and platforms, content manage systems, and able to work in a team-environment.

Students will visit the OIF and get hands on experience at ALA, as well as work in the CIPR to support the events and activities of the OIF, as appropriate. CIPR will be sponsoring Privacy Week events in Milwaukee, and the fieldworkers will be a part of the planning and development of those events.
