The William H. Hannon Library respects the privacy of all its users and considers patron records as confidential. This includes Internet usage.
The confidentiality includes materials borrowed and information sought or consulted. Material provided through our Document Delivery Services Office is also considered confidential. Such records may, however, be consulted by library staff members as a normal part of carrying out library functions, such as sending out overdue notices. The library may disclose personal information to law enforcement officers (federal, state, or local) when such person(s) present a subpoena, court order, or search warrant.
The policy is in compliance with:
- LMU privacy policies
- California general laws -- Cal. Gov't. Code §§ 6267 (West Supp. 1989)
- American Library Association:
- USA Patriot Act
- USA Patriot Act in the library
