Appendix I: Confidentiality of Library Patron Records

Confidentiality Of Library Patron Records

The library registration and circulation records of the Irvine Sullivan Ingram Library are confidential. Registration records include any information the library requires the faculty, staff, students and special borrowers to provide in order to become eligible to borrow materials. Circulation records include all information which identifies a faculty or staff member, student or special borrower as borrowing particular materials. Except in accordance with proper judicial order, no person shall make known in any manner any information contained in such records unless written permission from the borrower is given.

Nothing in this statement, however, shall prevent the use of such records by authorized Library personnel in the performance of his or her routine duties.
