Privacy and Disclosure Regulation of Information Systems; A Bibliographic Survey. Publication 75-8.
Seipp, David J.
Concern is growing over the problems of freedom of information, individual right to privacy, and automated recordkeeping systems. As a guide to policy considerations for overview and for detail, this extensive structured bibliography of privacy and disclosure literature adopts a topical scheme, dividing the subject first into governmental and nongovermental information and then into 12 kinds of information systems. In the area of government, the bibliography is divided into crime information, public information, personal information, statistical information, political information, and tax information. In the nongovernmental area, the citations are divided into credit information, financial information, medical information, personnel information, commercial information, and school information. Under the topic of transfer of information, material is divided into that which deals with interconnection of computers and that which deals with Social Security numbers as standard universal identifiers. Each of the subcategories which make up the main body of the paper is introduced by a short narrative sketch of the background and mid-1975 status of that information area. A summary of state laws on privacy and disclosure is appended. (JY)
