Library computer users are often
novices and may not be aware that
even seemingly innocuous information
supplied to Web sites can be mined by
government agencies, unscrupulous
businesses, and criminals. Even the
donated computers that libraries accept
and pass on to otherwcan reveal
confidential information like social
security numbers. The recent discovery
that online service providers have
been supplying vast quantities of data
to government agencies without the
public's knowledge dramatically brought
this threat to light. This book will help
you, as a librarian, understand the
threats and pitfalls of electronic privacy
and develop a solid plan to protect the
privacy of your patrons. A glossary of
terms and acronyms is included.

guide for graying
