Heads up:  Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) and the congressional lame duck session....

We have heard that it is more than likely that Senator Leahy will bring up ECPA during the Congressional lame duck session in mid-November.  We are waiting to see just what provisions are being changed.  Will keep you all up-to-date as we hear more, although likely we won't hear much until after the November elections. 

More information on ECPA in THOMAS.GOV is at:

Discussion GPO is seeking feedback from ALA

by Jessica McGilvray (staff) on Fri, Aug 1, 2014 at 07:52 am

Good morning!

I wanted to alert you to a blog post that I put up today.  GPO reached out to ALA to ask for comment on their proposed changes to the Federal Depository program.  In the blog post, I have asked that interested members/ units submit their thoughts to me no later than August 20th.  I will then submit ALA's comments to GPO by August 29th.
