Overview

Concentrating on privacy issues in public, school and academic libraries, this title pays particular attention to the effect of technology on personal privacy in these settings. In depth discussions of the laws effecting personal privacy and privacy in library settings will be explored. Recent laws enacted that impact individual privacy are discussed and explained. Special attention is given to the USA Patriot Act. Appendices with core privacy documents, sample privacy and confidentiality policies and outlines for privacy audits to be implemented in staff training situations in all types of libraries will add to the practicality of the book for individual librarians. It will be both a helpful handbook and a guide to encourage further study on these complex issues. Of particular interest is the impact of personal privacy on issues of accessibility to online databases and other online information in academic libraries.
