On August 10, 2017 LearningExpress will move to HTTPS and SSL for more secure browsing. HTTPS is the secure version of HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol). As an HTTPS website, all information sent using a web browser to LearningExpress will be encrypted, preventing anyone from intercepting the message anywhere along the network to the server.

Many BadgerLink vendor websites, including our authentication and federated search provider Auto-Graphics, have already moved to HTTPS, so we are happy to see this addition. Libraries, like any provider of a service to the public, must have the confidence of the public to succeed and thrive. Patron privacy is one way to tell your library users you have respect for them and their needs, and for patrons to be assured the library is acting in their best interests. Moving from HTTP to a secure HTTPS communications platform helps convey that message.
