Question: What is the Library' general privacy of information policy?


  • The Marshall University Libraries value and protect the privacy of their users. 
  • Federal and state (WV Code, Section 10-1-22) laws protect the privacy of your library records.
  •  In addition, the libraries have policies and procedures that facilitate timely removal of information from systems.
  • However, be aware that the USA Patriot Act (PL107-56) enables Federal officials to obtain library records with proper warrant and also prevents the libraries from notifying you that these records have been obtained.
