Statement of Privacy
Privacy is essential to the exercise of free speech, free thought, and free association. The courts have established a First Amendment right to receive information in a publicly funded library like UW. In a library, the right to privacy is the right to open inquiry without having the subject of one's interests examined or scrutinized by others.
UW Libraries Privacy Statement
