CONFIDENTIALITY AND PRIVACY
The Kalamazoo College Library maintains the confidentiality
of its patron records. The Library staff will not divulge
any details of a patron's library record to other patrons, persons,
or agencies, except in accordance with proper judicial order
and with permission of the designated administrative officer(s)
of the College. Patron information includes name, address,
telephone number, borrowing record, and Web browsing histories.
The library follows the
Code of Ethics of the American Library Association and
Michigan Compiled Laws § Act 455, sections 397.601-606
(the "Library Privacy Act"). These require all libraries
to protect the patron's right to confidentiality and privacy
when using library materials.
