This presentation by Johnny Boursiquot was part of the NISO Virtual Conference on Transforming Search. Boursiquot offered this as the abstract for his talk:
As Information professionals, our desire to provide value to our users brings with it the need to understand how they interact with the tools we build to create effective search experiences. This understanding often comes with the capture and analysis of interaction data — a practice that has been under increasing scrutiny with regards to privacy concerns, and rightly so. In this talk, we explore some practical and infrastructure-level considerations we can bring to bear as technology builders to treat user privacy responsibly while delivering on the promise of value to our users.
