4.003 Recordkeeping

Replaces 09/17/2002

The library maintains records in compliance with all applicable laws.

The library will make all practicable efforts to retain records containing patron-identifiable information only to the extent necessary to preserve library or public property, to fulfill another core library function, or to comply with the law.

To the extent that such records are necessary, the library will strive to make them non-patron-identifiable or minimally patron-identifiable.  Alternative methods for temporarily identifying customers will be employed when possible, such as partial names and phone numbers for self-service holds.
