2014 Utah Library Association Great Issues Forum


The Utah Library Association’s Intellectual Freedom Committee is excited to announce an upcoming Great Issues Forum about privacy, the library, and the ever-evolving milieu in which we all work and live. This event will be held May 21, 2014 at the Viridian Event Center at the Salt Lake County West Jordan Branch in West Jordan, Utah.

More and more we are asking ourselves how surveillance into our private lives makes us more or less secure. Thomas Panuzio (Homeland Security expert), DeborahCaldwell-Stone (ALA Office of Intellectual Freedom) and the Utah ACLU will present a compelling discussion on our safety, freedom, and rights at this Great Issues Forum.

Lunch will be provided and there is limited seating, so please register as soon as possible.
