Privacy Information

Use of all UMGC Library online resources and services, including but not limited to the library research databases, UMGC Library OneSearch, USMAI Book Search, search by subject and subject/course resources guides, DocumentExpress, and Ask A Librarian functions, is subject to the provisions of use detailed in UMGC Policy X-1.12 – Acceptable Use Policy.

Although the UMGC Library makes every effort to protect the privacy of user circulation records (including materials circulated, interlibrary loan requests, and Internet searches), UMGC 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 UMGC 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 UMGC to petition to have this ban removed after one year.
