Government Policies

I wanted to make a quick post about our discussion on how government policies have affected libraries lately.

The Telecommunications Act of 1996 provisions of the law emphasized the importance of public libraries serving as Internet access points for the communities they serve.

The Children's Internet Protection Act requires a library that receives certain types of E-rate and LSTA funds to filter Internet access in the library.

USA Patriot Act have wide-ranging implications for libraries including increases in the circumstances of records that can be searched, the allowance of tracing and searching though electronic communication, and the gag order placed on investigations.
