Abstract:Against a backdrop of increasing data security and privacy concerns, current data protection law will soon be overhauled by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Previous research has found comparable results of a lack of data protection management in libraries. However, it has been nine years since the latest study. This survey aims to provide an updated study into the extent of data protection management in UK library and information services and gauge preparation of the incoming GDPR. The survey was open for a month and received 162 responses. Quantitative data was analysed SPSS statistics software package and compared to previous research. This revealed largely higher percentages for respondents aware of data protection legislation, training, policies and protection officers than recorded in previous studies. This might suggest that data protection management in libraries has improved, however respondents were not confident about GDPR.
