When I log into the databases, I enter my user ID and password. Is that information being kept someplace?


Your University of Minnesota Internet ID (user ID) and password are only used to query the campus x.500 Directory Service so that the Library can identify whether you are a current University student or employee for purposes of inclusion under our license agreements with the vendors of our various online resources. The Library does not retain this password information beyond the point of validating your access rights.
