Protecting Patron Privacy: Safe Practices for Public Computers


Matt's first book titled Protecting Patron Privacy: Safe Practices for Public Computers was published by Libraries Unlimited in June 2015.  Orders are available right now on the ABC-CLIO page, and the Amazon page.


Protecting Patron Privacy is a practical guide for libraries and librarians showing ways that privacy is lost on public computers, and ways that libraries can help to protect their patrons. 


The book has several sections on how privacy is lost, how to configure public computers, browser plug-ins, and applications that can be installed.
