Since its enactment on October 26, 2001 and its recent extension on March 9, 2006, the USA Patriot Act has been a subject of question and concern in relation to privacy issues. Sections 215 & 505 of the Patriot Act specifically applies to libraries and their patrons.
The Colorado Assocation of Libraries has recently published a brochure titled What You Should Know About The USA Patriot Act, aimed at library users to address such questions and concerns. Copies of the brochure are available at the Reference Desk. You can also read a PDF of the brochure online by clicking here.
