== Background ==
 +
The Technologies of Surveillance Working Group was formed at the end of the 2017 DLF Forum by Yasmeen Shorish and Shea Swauger. This group came out of the [https://osf.io/eghdn/ Surveyance or Surveillance? Working Lunch] at the Forum and is dedicated to interrogating our relationships with data collection technologies. Libraries are increasingly investing in systems that can track and correlate user behavior.
 +
 
 +
This group will interrogate the methods and ethical implications of these technologies and '''seeks to establish guidelines''' for how to operationalize interrogation of technology, wherever we encounter it in our profession. To that end, we expanded our initial idea of three sub-groups to five, based on community feedback. Our investigative areas are:
 +
 
 +
=== Library-Built Systems ===
 +
This sub-group investigates the systems that libraries create, such as open source repositories.

Data collection behavior extends far beyond the systems that libraries have direct connections with. One way to help track the news stories and investigative work done in this area is through Twitter, using the hashtag '''#panoptitech.'''
