Public Libraries Around the Country Protect Patron Privacy

From Boston.com, another article focused on public library efforts to maintain the privacy of their patron’s usage records:

  • “The public library in Boulder, the home of the University of Colorado, has adopted one of the country’s most aggressive policies to keep circulation records private. The library keeps a bare minimum of information on books that are checked out and, when books are returned, any record of who checked them out is purged from the library’s computer.”
  • Posted in Patriot Act
