Confidentiality of Library User Records

Policy

Library user records will not be made available to any individual or to any agency of local, state or federal government, except under the following circumstances:

  1. The library may disclose personal records at its discretion if it is necessary to carry out library policy (i.e. borrower records may be turned over to University Police in the course of attempts to collect non-returned library materials).
  2. A library user may request his/her own records.
  3. The library may turn over library use records if the library is served a valid process, subpoena or court order by a law enforcement agency or prosecutor, or a National Security Letter (NSL). The Office of Legal Affairs is the appropriate office on campus to receive the process and will direct the library in complying with the valid process, subpoena, etc. Whenever possible, library administration will consult with the Office of Legal Affairs before turning over personally identifiable information.
  4. Staff may not provide a web browser history to anyone unless directed to do so by the UT Health SA Office of Legal Affairs.
