| The staff of Moffett Library, Midwestern State University, is committed to protecting the right of|
access to materials and the privacy of all its users: students, faculty, staff and others, and the
confidential relationship which exists between these users and the Library.
| In order to achieve that commitment, the staff conforms to the standards set by the American Library|
Association. Extensive information on access and privacy issues can be found on the association's
webpage Intellectual and Academic Freedom Statements and Policy page.
| This obligation is accepted by Midwestern State University's Moffett Library which has resolved that:|
| • Personal details of clients (including residential and employment status and the nature of|
individual information requests) may not be released or distributed without the consent of the client
| • No information is to be given out with regard to who has borrowed particular material, who has the |
item on loan at the moment, or who has placed a hold on it
| • Borrower's cards can give access to personal and private information which must not be made|
available to anyone but the borrower. They are not to be given to anyone except the borrower
indicated on the card.
| In situations in which either the state of Texas or U. S. government personnel, campus police or |
university administration request information about whether clients have borrowed certain library
materials, the requestor should be referred to the University Librarian.
