CUL Task Force on Patron Record Retention: Report
Koennecke, Jesse; Lamb-Deans, Debra; Walker, Kizer; Walker, Martha; Hsu, Martha
This is the report of the task force charged to examine patron data retention in light of changes in federal laws that make it possible for law enforcement officials to request patron records from libraries much more easily than in the past. In order to protect patron privacy and confidentiality, it is therefore important that the Library retain only those patron-specific records that are absolutely essential for present operations. These issues are explained fully in the "Report of the CUL Task Force on Law Enforcement Access to Library Records" (June 2002).
