Electronic Communications policies

Context

The Library provides several electronic channels for transmitting written information of interest to Library staff — each channel has a distinct function. Persons submitting items are asked to consider and abide by the descriptions and functions set forth below when submitting/sending messages or articles. Although more than one channel could carry the same message, it saves your audience time if you only send information once.

Please note that University policies such as those pertaining to personal conduct, respect and civility in the campus community, use of University name and logo, or sexual harassment apply to the use of campus computing and network resources.

In utilizing electronic communications, all UCB Library employees will be in compliance with the provisions and guidelines of the following campus policies:
