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.
