What implications do the latest disclosures about wide-spread government surveillance have for libraries, librarians, and patrons? The purpose of this session is to provide librarians an update and refresher on the palpable impacts of surveillance. The conversations will canvass recent NSA disclosures, digital surveillance, as well as laws familiar to librarians, such as the Patriot Act and FISA, and delve into ways the Library Community is and can be involved in surveillance issues.
