USU Libraries adheres to FERPA requirement regarding patron information (http://familypolicy.ed.gov/?src=ferpa.) We follow Utah State Law regarding access to patron records and information. For more information regarding this code refer to Utah Code, Title 63. State Affairs in General 63-2-302. Private Records.
Unless required by law, patron information is not provided to non-library entities or any other person or organization except the owning patron on the account. To safeguard patron information once a book is returned to the library the link between a patron and the item checked out is deleted. The only exception to this deletion is for books with fines or those books regarded as “lost” on a patron’s account. USU Libraries periodically collects aggregated data for the sole purpose of assessing library services and resources. This data does not contain identifying information tied to any individual.
