Title:Website Security in Public Libraries: The Case Study of Security Applications in Wisconsin Public Libraries
Author(s):Lee, Tae Hee
Subject(s):Information security
Website design
Public libraries
Abstract:Since the Internet came out, most of the public libraries have been provided their virtual website for users as their physical front desk and digital services have been penetrated to the public library due to the convenience of access. Therefore, adapted new technologies are essential to enhance digital services for their patrons, along with saving cost and operational efficiency. To acquire the goal, public libraries could develop their website by themselves or contract with third-party vendors who have built robust solutions to help to build digital services, such as cloud computing solutions. The use of digital services through the website has been provided quicker and more convenient services, but there are potential risks to lose data, such as patrons’ information. Due to increasing the threat of data hacking, there is a consideration to protect website systems and information on the public library website. Many public libraries have a security policy and applied security features, but there are many vulnerable points in their websites due to saving cost, lack of security policy, awareness of security, or the size of libraries. Therefore, this study will examine some public libraries’ websites in Wisconsin and provide a snapshot of security applications, such as website security settings and security policies. As a result, this poster will report on a pilot study to help us understand how public libraries apply website security for protecting their digital services and their current weakness and vulnerabilities.
