From h20boro lib blog’s "Update on the USA Patriot Act":
The Washington Post says: "The proposal would restrict federal agents’ access to library records, one of the Patriot Act’s most contentious provisions. A form of secret subpoena known as National Security Letters could no longer be used to obtain records from libraries that function ‘in their traditional capacity, including providing basic Internet access,’ [Senator John] Sununu [R-N.H.] and others said in a statement. But libraries that are ‘Internet service providers’ would remain subject to the letters, [Sen. Richard] Durbin [D- Ill.] said."
