Abstract:Privacy issues are not well understood by the general user. A common perception is that the younger computer user is less informed or concerned with privacy issues than the older user. However, recent studies have been finding that this is not necessarily the case. The researchers in this study would like to examine these privacy perceptions cross-generation when it comes to e-Book reading histories, utilization of commercial bookstore websites as well as library websites. A small pilot case study will interview e-Book users of different age groups to determine how they view privacy when purchasing e-books or checking them out from the library.
