Baker Library is committed to upholding the State of Connecticut's policy on Confidentiality of Library Records (CT Statutes Chapter 190, Title 11, Sections 11-25) and Personal Data (CT Statutes Chapter 55, Title 4, Sections 4-190 through 4-193). To ensure the privacy and confidentiality of individuals, the library has adopted the following policy:
We prioritize safeguarding the confidentiality of our users' information and ensuring their privacy rights. Please feel free to contact library staff if you have any questions or concerns about this policy.
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects a student’s privacy with regard to personal information contained in the library’s integrated system. This includes but is not limited to personal data, titles borrowed, and overdue fines or replacement and processing fees for lost or damaged items. Disclosure of any personal information, as protected by both the State of Connecticut’s policy and FERPA, will be authorized only in compliance with the presentation by an official of a city, state, or federal law enforcement agency of a lawfully issued subpoena. The agent will be informed that the subpoena will need to be presented to the library director, the academic dean, or the college CEO.
