Here’s a conference for librarians who find themselves both in the NYC metropolitan area and interested in the state of civil liberties: “Personal Liberties in the Age of Terrorism”, which being hosted by the New York Metropolitan Library Council (METRO to you Visigoths) on May 13 from 9:00am – 2:30pm at the Brooklyn College Library. They’re advertising attendances by civil liberties attorney Norman Siegel, Daniel Lyons from the FBI, and Marcia Hoffman from the Electronic Privacy Information Center, so this is likely to be a lot of fun. I already signed up for it, as this is a field of intense concern for me (if you couldn’t guess by my letter to the NRO last week).
The conference description is here.
The METRO (all right, so I’m a Visigoth) registration link is here.
And I’ll post a bit about what I learn there next week.
