  1. Electronic Privacy Does it exist?

  2. Issue: Privacy concerns with library and bookseller records continue due to the reauthorization of Section 215. The USA PATRIOT Act increased the ability of law enforcement agencies to search library, telephone, e-mail communications, medical, financial, and other records. Specifically Section 215, often called the “library provision,” allows the FBI to order any person or entity to turn over “any tangible thing” – including library records – as long as the FBI states that it is for an authorized investigation to protect against international terrorism or clandestine intelligence activities. ALA Office of Government Relations’ Lynne Bradley has pointed out Section 215 has “long been the focus of ALA's efforts to seek reforms to the PATRIOT Act because it particularly addresses law enforcement access to any kind of tangible thing or records.”
