I agree entirely with Frank. Having just spoken with our consortium
attorney, I can tell you that at least in New York, because patrons
self-initiate a relationship with the Elf, and the patrons themselves
voluntarily provide their personal information, the onus is on the
patron and not the library or the consortium.
That said, our attorney agrees that disclaimer language on our
web/catalog page is a good idea.
It's also important that we encourage III to continue the patron
empowerment thread of development so that we are in a position to offer
our patrons such services ourselves.
In our case the issue will be on our next Board agenda. Although I would
never presume to speak for the Board, based on our list discussion and
my conversation with our attorney, my guess is that we will acknowledge
that we have been "Elfed", develop the disclaimer language, and go on
with our lives.
