[Michlib-l] scan to email

A couple libraries indicated that they were interested in my findings.

No Library indicated that they attach a disclaimer in the body of the email generated by their scan to email service.
I have not yet had the following reviewed by a lawyer, but as a temporary measure I am using this language:


DO NOT REPLY.  The attachment was emailed from a scanner at the Garden City (MI) Public Library.  This is a self-serve machine.  The Library and its staff neither monitors nor controls the public use of the scanner.  Therefore, neither the Library nor its staff take any responsibility for the quality or content of the text or image(s) transmitted.

A similar statement will be worked into the policy my Board will be considering at an up-coming meeting.

If your Library offers "scan to email" service, do you have any disclaimer sent in the body of the email?  If so, would you be willing to share the language with me?  Thank you in advance.
