This is a library question on policy and just curious how others are
Reading history can be maintained in Koha - I understand that, and as a
policy we protect individuals freedom to read what they want.
As a School district - we often get the request from teachers and parents
"I need a list of what Susie has read this semester"... Currently we have
not been providing access to even the students so it is easy for us to say
"Sorry we don't keep that information"... I know we could say "Sorry that
is private student information and I can't share it", Teachers could
probably be thwarted with that, but not so much Parents...
Then the whole "FBI" coming for reading history is another issue... As we
build these features that allow "staring" and "if you read X you might
enjoy Y" or "people who read X also read Y" - what is our best avenue for
defending our clients reading history, yet making these features available
