Abstract
A GIS captures, stores, manipulates, analyses and presents geo-coded data coded to a particular location such as a census tract or block number, school or postal address, state or city, postal code, or congressional district. GISs enable researchers and others to connect databases through a common referent (such as social security number, address, or telephone number) which can result in a highly specialized profile that can reveal characteristics of individual households. As the application of GIS increases, federal and state governments in the USA have many privacy issues to consider. Discusses the significance of privacy concerns to libraries providing GIS services for researchers and others. Emphasizes the need for librarians to be aware of any federal or state legislation being considered and its implications for library services
