Privacy Information

Use of all UMUC Library online resources and services, including but not limited to the library research databases, UMUC Library OneSearch, the library catalog, search by subject and subject/course resources guides, DocumentExpress, and Ask A Librarian functions, is subject to the provisions of use detailed in UMUC Policy 270.00 – Acceptable Use Policy.

Although the UMUC Library makes every effort to protect the privacy of user circulation records (including materials circulated, interlibrary loan requests, and Internet searches), UMUC may be obligated to release such information to law enforcement agents in response to a search warrant or subpoena, such as those issued in accordance with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, 50 U.S.C. 1861, as amended by the USA PATRIOT Act (Public Law 107-56). This law prohibits UMUC staff from informing you that it received such a request. However, the USA PATRIOT Act Additional Reauthorizing Amendments Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-178) permits UMUC to petition to have this ban removed after one year.
