What does privacy mean in a digital age? Is there any effective and proven way for governments, businesses, and individuals to safeguard their stores of information? These are important and timely questions, and they are but a few of those addressed in this recent release from The National Academies Press. This volume was edited by James Waldo, Herbert S. Lin, and Lynnette I. Millett, and it contains findings gleaned through the work of the Committee on Privacy in the Information Age, which was convened by the National Research Council. All told, the document is 452 pages long, and the chapter titles include "Health and Medical Privacy", "The Legal Landscape in the United States", and "Libraries and Privacy". Along with three substantial appendices, the report also includes an executive summary and a podcast.
