New Catalogue and Privacy

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. I like the new catalogue interface but I noticed it is hosted on server located outside of Canada. What personal information as defined in Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act is being stored, is there an option to opt out of the new catalogue and have users been properly informed that library services may not be fulfilled with Canadian servers?

Specifically when I try to see what I have checked out, it takes me too sfu-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com which has an IP in Illinois, USA. Is my record being stored there?

 

Incorrect Linking for Digital Articles

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: There was an article that I searched for today and I found that the library database has linked the wrong full text link for the article title that I was looking for.

The article is "Uncovering Facebook Photo Tagging Culture and Practices among Digital Natives" by Aqdas Malik, Amandeep Dhir, and Marko Nieminen; the full text link that comes up is for "Media Re-victimization of Rape Victims in a Shame Culture? Exploring the Framing and Representation of Rape Cases in Nigerian Dailies".
