Guiding Principl e The University of Texas Libraries policy is that its circulation records and other records linking a library user with specific materials or services are confidential in nature According to the Texas Public Information Act as amended 1999 and in accord with established principles guiding the provision of library services staff members may not release the names of borrowers who are using or who have used library materials or services Exceptions are made only upon court order or subpoena or when deemed necessary by University officials for internal investigations See also part 13 of this Lending and Use Code Staff members are expected to evaluate circulation practices periodically to determine those areas where information leading to the identification of borrowers in relation to specific materials might be revealed Examples of areas for examination include the placement of computer monitors or circulation terminals on which borrowers records are displayed the location of hold shelves with flagged books or search hold recall request slips and the location of the work area for sorting and mailing notices 2 Guidance for Staff The Vice President and Chief Financial Officer is the University s liaison with judicial and law enforcement authorities and with other individuals and organizations in matters regarding official records of the University The Libraries staff should direct inquiries from law enforcement representatives and from others to the Office of the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer A Libraries staff member may not release information except to the Office of the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer or to a Libraries administrator to be passed on to the Office of the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer The University of Texas System Business Procedures Memorandum 32 09 99 Texas Public Information Act establishes each component institution s Chief Financial Officer as the custodian of records for that institution An exception to the usual guidelines regarding release of library records concerns an internal investigation of possible student misconduct Student Judicial Services a division of the Office of the Dean of Students serves as arbiter in internal matters relating to student library records For example when academic dishonesty is suspected as when an instructor believes that a reserve item is being held by one student to deprive others the instructor makes a request to Student Judicial Services to investigate the situation In such a case library staff may be asked to release a student s name to Student Judicial Services or to a University of Texas Libraries administrator for passing on to Student Judicial Services but does not release protected information directly to the faculty member A student s parent is included in prohibitions relating to the release of information A parent can be advised to talk with the student for more information concerning a bill In all matters related to confidentiality of records the Libraries Associate Director for Public Services can assist library staff members and those requesting the release of information 3 Relevant text from the Texas Public Information Act Excerpted from the Texas Government Code Establishment of an exception for library record Sect 552 124 Exception Records of Library or Library System a A record of a
