Privacy/ID Theft


American Library Association

Historically, librarians have sought to protect users' confidentiality by scrupulously guarding library patrons' records from public scrutiny. The American Library Association (ALA) first officially recognized the right to privacy in 1939 in its Code of Ethics for Librarians. Today, the ALA professional ethics code continues to acknowledge the paramount importance of library patron privacy.
