CHICAGO - A new video will be available May 1 for use during
Choose Privacy Week (May 2-8, 2010).

Produced by filmmaker Laura Zinger, the video features “man on the street” interviews, as well as discussions of privacy with such individuals as Neil Gaiman, Cory Doctorow, and ALA President Camila Alire.

Librarians and others can share the video online and host events to discuss the issues it raises.
