> Subject: Electronic Reserves passwords
> It has come to our attention that some faculty members have included
> the
> password for access to their Electronic Reserve readings on their
> syllabi,
> and have posted those syllabi on web sites that are free and open to
> the
> public. Please be advised that copyright restrictions require that
> materials placed on Electronic Reserve be made available only to the
> students currently enrolled in the course. Electronic Reserves
> passwords
> should be provided to students in a secure way that does not allow
> others
> not enrolled in the course to find and use them.
> Please make Electronic Reserves passwords available only through
> secure,
> passworded web sites or within a passworded learning management system
> such
> as Blackboard or iLearn.
> If Reserve Book Room staff find Electronic Reserves passwords listed on
> syllabi on publicly available web sites, they will discontinue access
> to
> readings on Electronic Reserve for that course until the password is
> made
> secure.
