Author(s):Winter, Kenneth A.
Subject(s):Librarians
Right of privacy
Abstract:This article presents legal, ethical and professional arguments for the protection of patron privacy, discussing different ways in which librarians have dealt with specific privacy violations. The article concludes that librarians must be ever-vigilant for new and unexpected ways in which privacy can be violated and advocates a strong understanding of state law and legal precedent, as well as a dedication to the highest ethical standards and the American judicial process.
