Uncommon Thinking for the Common Good™Stay
In accordance with common standards of privacy, the Code of Ethics of the American Library Association, and the California Government Code (Sections 6267 and 6254), we recognize that the library records of Menlo College students, faculty, staff, and other library patrons are confidential. These records include, but are not limited to, circulation records, interlibrary loan records, and information stored by patrons on the Library's computers. The same standards of confidentiality also apply to the questions asked by library patrons at the reference desk or elsewhere, the advice and assistance provided by library staff, and any other information related to the resources or equipment used by particular library patrons.
Confidential information will be used and shared by the Bowman Library staff only to the extent necessary for the proper functioning and administration of the Library. It will not be made available otherwise except as specifically required by law. No confidential information will be provided to outside agencies, including law enforcement agencies, unless the College first establishes that the relevant warrant, process, order, or subpoena is in the proper form and that there is a showing of good cause for its issuance.
Most AUPs Iâ€™ve seen specifically indicate that there should be NO expectation of privacy when using campus computing resources, and some Iâ€™ve seen (including this one from University of Florida) indicate that the institution may *proactively* refer suspected violations of the law to the authorities.
