    The legal process requiring the production of circulation or other library records shall ordinarily be in the form of subpoena duces tecum bring your records requiring the library director to attend court or the taking of his her deposition and may require him her to bring along certain designated circulation or other specified records Any threats or unauthorized demands i e those not supported by a process order or subpoena concerning circulation and other records identifying the names of library users shall be reported to the appropriate legal officer of the institution Any problems relating to the privacy of circulation and other records identifying the names of the library users which are not provided for above shall be referred to the library director Confidentiality and Copying with Law Enforcement Inquiries May 1989 ALA Guidelines for the Library Administrator Visits to libraries by law enforcement agents including FBI state county and municipal police have reached a high level of public awareness and concern particularly as a result of revelations about the FBI Library Awareness Program Prompted by inquiries about how to respond to visits by law enforcement officials the ALA Intellectual Freedom Committee developed the following guidelines These guidelines should be used with ALA s Policy on Confidentiality of Library Records and Statements on Professional Ethics to assist libraries and library employees in dealing with law enforcement inquiries Fundamental Principles Librarian s professional ethics require that personally identifiable information about library users be kept confidential This principal is reflected in Article III of the Code of Ethics which ALA adopted in 1981 Article III states Librarians must protest each user s right to privacy with respect to information sought or received and materials consulted borrowed or acquired This includes borrower registration information All state library associations have adopted the Statement on Professional Ethics which includes the Code of Ethics Moreover as of August 1 1989 such library records are protected by state law in 41 states and the District of Columbia and by attorneys general opinions in two additional states Confidential records should not be made available to any agency of state federal or local government or any other person outside the minimum necessary access by library staff unless a court order requiring disclosure has been entered by a court of competent jurisdiction after a showing of good cause by the person or agency requesting the records General Guidelines Confidentiality of library records is a basic principle of librarianship As a matter of policy or procedure the library administrator should insure that The library staff and governing board are familiar with the ALA Policy on Confidentiality The library staff and governing board are familiar with the state s library confidentiality statute or attorney general s opinion if one exists The library adopts a policy on confidentiality The library consults legal counsel to make counsel aware of these guidelines The staff is familiar with the specific guidelines which follow Specific Guidelines Library Procedures Affect Confidentiality Law enforcement visits aside be aware that library operating procedures have an impact on confidentiality The following are recommendations to bring library procedures into compliance with ALA s Statement on Professional Ethics and Policy on Confidentiality and internal library confidentiality policies Confidentiality statutes vary from state to state but these suggestions may also assist in compliance with the requirements of such statues For example Avoid unnecessary records Think twice before committing a name to a written record Check with your local governing body to see if the city county school board or other agencies set a time limit on record keeping then determine what it should be for the library and destroy records as soon as possible If your library uses names on borrower cards consider using numbers or blacking out the names Be aware of information in public view owing to library procedure e g overdue notices or filled request notices mailed on postcards names of patrons with overdue fines posted by the circulation desk or titles of interlibrary loan or reserve request provided over telephone to family members Law Enforcement Visits Recommended steps to take when law enforcement agents visit If a library staff person is approached by a law enforcement agent requesting information on a library user he she should immediately ask for identification and refer the agent to the library administrator or responsible officer of the institution The library administrator should explain the library s policy or if lacking an internal one ALA s confidentiality policy and the state confidentiality law where applicable Most important the library administrator should state that personally identifiable information about library users is not available under any circumstances except when a proper court order has been presented In response to appeals to patriotism e g a good American wants to help us explain that as patriotic good citizens library administrators and library staff value First Amendment freedoms and the corresponding privacy rights of library users Compliance with FBI requests made without a warrant or court order is strictly voluntary The library administrator must stress to agents that maintaining professional ethics and complying with state law are principles which are not voluntarily surrendered It is illegal to lie to a federal law enforcement officer Without a court order however the FBI has no independent authority to compel cooperation with an investigation or to require answers to questions other than name and address of the person to whom the agent is speaking The best thing to say to an agent who has asked for confidential information is I m sorry but my professional ethics and state law where applicable prohibit me from responding to your request Notify the American Library Association s Office for Intellectual Freedom 312 944 6780 or 1 800 545 2433 50 East Huron Street Chicago IL 60611 Procedure The library administrator should Meet with the law enforcement agent and a library colleague in the library Be cordial and explain that libraries support the work of law enforcement agencies and their ethical standards are not intended to
