Naked in Cyberspace 

Greatly expanded second edition of bestselling book is “the ultimate guide to what you can find out online about anyone”

September 30, 2002, Medford, NJ — Information Today, Inc. announces the publication of Naked in Cyberspace, 2nd Edition: How to Find Personal Information Online, by Carole A. Lane. This is a completely revised and expanded edition of Lane’s landmark 1997 book and includes a new foreword by Beth Givens, founder and director of the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse.

In Naked in Cyberspace, author Lane surveys the types of personal records and online services that are available on the Internet. She explains how researchers find and use personal data, identifies the most useful sources of information about people, and offers advice for those with privacy concerns. Readers are shown how to use online tools and databases to gain competitive intelligence, locate and investigate people, access public records, identify experts, find new customers, recruit employees, search for assets, uncover criminal records, conduct genealogical research, and much more.

Carole A. Lane has been involved with personal records as a designer of databases and information systems and as principal of her own research firm, TechnoSearch, Inc. She has served on the advisory board of the Special Libraries Association and on the board of directors of the Association of Independent Information Professionals. She is a sought- after speaker on research topics and on protecting the confidentiality of personal information in the digital age. She is frequently quoted on privacy issues in the media.
