Privacy Policy

Although the University System of Maryland and Affiliated Institutions (USMAI) Library Consortium makes every effort to protect the privacy of user circulation records (including books and Internet searches), the USMAI Libraries may be obligated to release such information to federal law enforcement agents in response to a search warrant or subpoena issued in accordance with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, 50 U.S.C. 1861, as amended by the USA PATRIOT Act (Public Law 107-56). That law prohibits library staff from informing you that it received such a request.
