Library Trends 35 (1) Summer 1986: Privacy, Secrecy, and National Information Policy


Library Trends 35 (1) Summer 1986: Privacy, Secrecy, and National Information Policy. Edited by Robert H. Burger.

Because of currency, importance, and sharing of certain characteristics - such as antinomy - privacy, secrecy, and national information policy were seen as an appropriate topic for an issue of Library Trends. Generally speaking we do not yet have a volume that attempts to deal with this complex subject in any comprehensive way. Answers to many questions relating to this broad area still elude us.

Here we are dealing with some of the most important issues of our time - technology, culture, and human values, and the attempts of nation-states to control and influence them. The efforts of the contributors to this symposium would be justified if their essays helped to start us on a path of discovery and promise.

Library Trends (ISSN 0024-2594) is an essential tool for librarians and educators alike. Each issue thoroughly explores a current topic of interest in professional librarianship and includes practical applications, thorough analyses, and literature reviews. The journal is published quarterly for the Graduate School of Library and Information Science by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
