Patron Privacy and the Library Copy Machine

A friend sent me this video recently: http://www.wimp.com/copymachines/

It’s a CBS report about how information is stored on copy machines and how that information can be accessed when the wrong people get a hold of your copy machine.

They found medical records, police reports, and more on the copiers they examined.

If patron privacy is a concern for you, then you need to look into ensuring your copy machine hard drive is wiped clean or that your library purchases the document deletion technologies that are available.
