Description:

This course is designed to analyze legal issues related to the management of information in contexts in which information professionals are likely to be involved— such as libraries, government agencies, archives, information management, and corporate settings. In an age defined by information, knowledge of the legal issues that establish how information is required to be protected, maintained, collected, stored, and accessed is extremely important. While there are far too many laws related to information and different issues related to management of information for this course to cover every specific context, the course will provide an overview of some of the most important legal issues in managing information so that students will be able to apply the course to particular professional situations that they may encounter
