The Center for Information Policy Research has engaged in numerous projects that investigate privacy in the digitally networked information environment, and its importance for information professionals.
CIPR has regularly sponsored educational and outreach activities during Choose Privacy Week, and has investigated the privacy implications of new Library 2.0 initiatives within library settings.
The American Library Association‘s Office for Intellectual Freedom commissioned CIPR to complete a survey of librarian attitudes on information privacy, whose results were published in Library Quarterly.
