Information collected via Google Analytics

The library websites use Google Analytics (a service provided by Google, Inc.) to analyze web traffic and to help us make website improvements. Google Analytics uses "cookies" which are small text files stored on your computer. Google Analytics collects information such as: your network location, IP address, search terms used, web pages requested, referring web page, browser and operating system, browser capabilities, screen resolution, date, and time. No personal information is stored in these cookies. You may refuse the use of cookies by adjusting the appropriate settings on your browser, however you may not be able to use the full functionality of our websites if cookies are turned off. For more information about Google Analytics and how this information can be used, please consult the Google Privacy Center.

Other information collected

The library also uses several web-based management tools including forms for renewing books, asking reference questions, requesting interlibrary loans, etc. We use personally identifiable information collected and stored in the library's computer system only to maintain a user's library account and communicate with that user. The library does not share this information with any other entity outside of the library, unless required by law.

Third party services

The library websites link to other websites and licensed databases that are not maintained or supported by our library. In some cases library services may be provided through a third party (such as search tools or chat widgets). While you may access these services via the library websites, the library is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these third party websites, and we encourage users of these services to explore the privacy policies of these third party websites for themselves.


If you have any questions about this privacy statement, or the practices of the library websites, please contact Jonathan Bloy, library webmaster.
