What does privacy mean to you? Is it something you value? Or, in the digital world, is privacy a thing of the past? Maybe it’s something you never really considered before.
Privacy is something that everyone should think about, especially now when more people are conducting business and sharing personal details online. You can learn more about this issue by consulting the Privacy page on Gale’s Opposing Viewpoints in Context, one of UAPL’s subscription databases.
Opposing Viewpoints brings balance and perspective to controversial issues by presenting information and pointed arguments from subject experts and top journalistic sources. Explore the concept of privacy by reading encyclopedia, magazine, and journal articles, listening to podcasts, watching videos, plus much more.
May 1-7 is officially recognized as Choose Privacy Week by libraries in America. UAPL is offering three programs where patrons can learn how to protect their computer, mobile device, and, more importantly, themselves from privacy intrusions. For more details on what's being offered, click on the links below.

Half-Resurrection Blues, by Daniel José Older
Carlos Delacruz is an agent of New York City’s Council of the Dead, charged with protecting the living and maintaining order among New York’s ghosts. He’s also an Inbetweener: after dying and coming back to life, Carlos gained the ability to see and speak with ghosts—and lost all memory of his past. He believes he’s the only Inbetweener in New York until the Council of the Dead orders him to hunt down a rogue sorcerer who turns out to be an Inbetweener, too. Soon, Carlos is untangling the threads of a conspiracy that threatens to bring down the walls between the dead and the living for good—and whose mastermind might be the man responsible for Carlos’s almost-death.
While the plot occasionally meanders, veteran short-story writer Older’s voice crackles with profane and hilarious life in his debut novel. A must-read for fans of urban fantasy.
