Social Security Numbers

In compliance with campus directives on the privacy of the social security numbers (SSNs) of faculty, staff, and students, the library is no longer using social security numbers.

Library users' SSNs will not be entered into the library's integrated library system, and library staff will use other search options, such as the Library Borrower ID Number (14-digit number) or faculty/staff/student 7-digit ID number, to identify a borrower's record.

Library users should never be asked to provide their SSN in order to receive any library service.
