In particular, the title discusses the effect that technology has had on personal privacy in these settings, including the impact of issues of accessibility to online databases and other online information sources on personal privacy. The laws affecting personal privacy and privacy in library settings are explained and discussed in depth. 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 library types) add to the practicality of the book for librarians. This helpful handbook provides a much-needed guide to these complex issues." --Book Jacket."@en
