The Public Library Association (PLA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) are partnering to share information on identity theft and identity protection. From the cover letter the FTC sent to PLA members: “Everything we produce is in the public domain: please share it with patrons—or your colleagues, community, friends and family; link to the information from your blog or website; and use the content on your social network or newsletter.”
The info, which you can download or order free copies of, includes:
- Safeguarding Your Child’s Future
- Identity Theft: What to Know, What to Do
- Taking Charge: What to Do If Your Identity is Stolen
Additionally, I think the info offers you a great idea and great background on which to build and offer a public program for your users on identity theft.
