With all the concerns regarding changes to the way the Internet is used, to news articles related to the evils done on the Dark Web, it is necessary for librarians to understand how the dark web works, and how they can use it in their library. This session will cover:
- the basics of what the dark web is, and how it came to exist
- How to use some of the basic dark web tools including TOR and I2P
- Understand how the dark web works, and how it creates privacy
- Discuss some of the recent changes to net neutrality, and how the dark web can be used to combat it
- How it can be used in your library - including the benefits and challenges you might face
This presentation will be covering many of the same topics covered in an upcoming LITA Guide titled: "Casting Light on the Dark Web: Dispelling Myths and Using it to Preserve Your Anonymity" By Matt Beckstrom and Brady Lund.
