FBI vs. Libraries!

Another Chronicle of Higher Education article, linked above, reports on the struggle between the FBI and a Connecticut library consortium over a "national-security letter." This was the FBI attempt to require the consortium to turn over e-mail records from one of its members, St. Joseph College, where a student allegedly sent a terrorist threat by e-mail from a campus account. The ACLU assisted them. See ACLU story link. The ACLU website also has helpful links to the security letter itself: NSL link, and background reports on the matter.

The decoration is a thumbnail of one of 2 ACLU posters about the PATRIOT ACT.
