CPW 2012: George Christian on Taking a Stand for Privacy

Choose Privacy Week, PATRIOT Act, Privacy

This is the second in a series of three video presentations in advance of Choose Privacy Week that explore the growing impact of government surveillance on our civil liberties. In this video, George Christian, executive director of the Library Connection, Inc., discusses challenging government surveillance in the library, with advice on how all librarians can take a stand for privacy.

George Christian is the executive director of the Library Connection, Inc., a non-profit cooperative of 27 public and academic libraries that share an automated library system and other technology services. In 2005, he joined three other librarians in a lawsuit challenging portions of the USA Patriot Act after the Library Connection received a National Security Letter seeking sensitive information about a library patron.
