Privacy & Confidentiality

Privacy and confidentiality are vital to free exploration and inquiry in academic libraries. Students, faculty, and staff should feel free from scrutiny or breach of confidentiality.

What is "privacy?"

Patron Privacy involves a library user’s right to free inquiry without the fear of scrutiny.

What is "confidentiality?"

Confidentiality involves personally identifiable information stored about a patron and the commitment of the Library to keeping that information secure.

Practices for ensuring patron privacy and confidentiality:
  1. After completing a circulation transaction, close all patron records in Sierra.
  2. Do not leave books or other circulation materials with patron information in public spaces.
  3. Do not comment or discuss patron materials or selections in front of other patrons.

Student ID Cards

In order to check out materials at the Jefferson College Library, patrons must show a valid Jefferson College student or faculty/staff ID card. Patrons may obtain one free ID when they register as a student at Jefferson College. Should they lose their ID card, they must pay for a replacement. To obtain or replace a student ID card:

  • The student needs to show a copy of their schedule and a photo ID (e.g. drivers license, passport, military ID)
  • Pay $7 for a replacement ID. The library accepts cash and checks. If paying with a debit or credit card, the student will need to pay at the cashier in the Student Center and bring back the receipt.
  • Students can also get an ID at the Student Center, Jefferson College-Arnold, and Jefferson College-Imperial.
