email as directory info
I’ve seen other U’s that have the email directory behind the portal log-in—still allows for collaboration, but is not “public” or open to the world. I would love to see this model here—just cuts down on external crawling of our site and protects the users.
We have 2 things at KU—one a student may choose to restrict their email address from showing up in the public/online directory if they do that in the privacy settings.
Second, at KU we have email as directory info, however, our policy states that email in bulk is not released due to privacy issues.
Further, our state Open Records/Sunshine laws allows us to not provide bulk listings e.g. name + email of all students if the requesting party is asking for the listing for purposes of selling goods or property to the list. So you might check your state Sunshine Laws if you are a public and see if there may be an exception to disclosure of this type of info.
Just a couple thoughts. Has anyone with the information “behind the portal” experienced issues?
