Personal Information in Library and Archives Collections

The Library and Archives is actively digitizing collections of historical records and publications so that they can be accessed over the web. These materials are of interest to genealogists, historians, and many others. Library and Archives reviews collections before they are put on the web to ensure they do not contain personally identifying information, such as Social Security numbers, birth dates, or other information that could be used in identity theft.

Because we are not able to review each record individually, it is possible that personally identifying information in isolated records are available on the web. If you find personally identifying information in a record, please contact the appropriate branch.

Release of Personal Information

Arizona laws ensure that state government is open and that the public has a right to access appropriate records and information possessed by the state. As such, the Library and Archives may be obliged to release records containing information we have collected within the limits of state law and the federal Privacy Act of 1974.
