Librarians vs. the NSA

One of the core values of librarianship is privacy.

The Nation recently ran a front-page article on librarians’ fight against unwarranted surveillance — Librarians Versus the NSA.

“Librarians have frequently been involved in the fight against government surveillance. The first librarian to be locked up for defending privacy and intellectual freedom was Zoia Horn, who spent three week in jail in 1972 for refusing to testify against anti–Vietnam War activists. During the Cold War, librarians exposed the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s attempts to recruit library staffers to spy on foreigners, particularly Soviets, through a national effort called the Library Awareness Program.”
