Choose Privacy Week, May 1-8

Every year, the American Library Association designates the first week of May as Choose Privacy Week. This event “promotes the importance of individual privacy rights and celebrates libraries and librarians’ unique role in protecting privacy in the library and in society as a whole.” This year’s theme and featured article is “Big Brother is Watching You: The ethical role of libraries and big data.” Because libraries and librarians operate under a code of ethics, they have become trusted protectors of privacy that are constantly under assault.

The University Libraries protects your privacy. We will not provide information about one borrower’s circulation records to another person except in the event of the death of the borrower. You can find more tools and information about privacy below:
