Blog post: Does your library make sure that vendors aren't able to track library users' seaches?

LibraryLaw Blog asks that question in thinking about online databases and integrated library systems (ILS) that libraries use. But we have the same concern when it comes to searches run in our content management systems (or digital asset management systems or...). Mary Minow notes that you can write into a contact something about this, but that you also need to be sure that there is nothing that logs who has done what. I'm sure this is something we're not thinking about in a big way...
