Our policies conform to the Code of Ethics of the American
Association, which provides
this summation of the library community's commitment to privacy: "We protect each library user's right to privacy and confidentiality with respect to information sought or received and resources consulted, borrowed, acquired or transmitted." While we do gather data about system and resource usage for administrative purposes, the use of that information conforms to the precepts of confidentiality denoted in the Code of Ethics statement.
The resulting logs contain information necessary for analyzing the use of resources, troubleshooting problems, and improving services. These logs remain intact for approximately one fiscal year.
Digital Scriptorium will not disclose the email addresses of those who write to us with comments, suggestions or problems.
