The LACUNY Institute is an annual, one-day conference open to LIS professionals, students, and the general public. It is organized by the Library Association of the City University of New York (LACUNY), and although geared to academic librarians, it strives to have broad relevance to the profession.

This year’s theme is Privacy and Surveillance: Library Advocacy for the 21st Century, and features theoretical and practical talks on subjects ranging from social media to Tor to library privacy policies to e-books.

We are pleased this year to feature a keynote speech by Rainey Reitman, Activism Director for the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Chief Operating Officer and co-founder of the Freedom of the Press Foundation. We also welcome Alison Macrina of the Library Freedom Project, who will offer a closing talk.
