The Library Freedom Project is asking libraries and publishers that provide digital information services in libraries to pledge to implement HTTPS over the next year. See https://libraryfreedomproject.org/ourwork/digitalprivacypledge/
Many smaller libraries are worried that they don’t have and can’t afford the technical expertise to do this implementation. A few developers have written to us expressing their willingness to help out, but we’d like to be ready in case LOTS of libraries need this sort of help.
If you’d like to volunteer, send us an email at email@example.com We’ll be explaining to libraries the risks of working with people they don’t know, so be sure to explain who you are and where you are.
The ideal situation is if you can help a library you already have a relationship with, so if your library isn’t on HTTPS, send the URL above to the libraries director.
