Virtually all EDUCAUSE members are learning to deal with the explosive growth of networking, connecting every part of the campus community and linking to colleagues and information resources across the country and around the world. Many of the issues campuses are facing today relate to this proliferation of campuswide networks and Internet connectivity--free speech, censorship, student records privacy, ethical standards, defining "institutional information" on the World Wide Web, information environment, and so forth.
Many institutions are moving toward establishing policies to deal with these issues. How do you know when you need a policy? How can we best share existing policies so we can learn from the work of our peers? Is it possible to create a model set of policies based on work that has already been done in this area? As a forum for facilitating the sharing and exchange of information, EDUCAUSE has indexed and abstracted many information policies contributed by member campuses to the Library, as well as articles, papers, and web sites related to campus information policy challenges. You can browse through the Library to see abstracts of policy documents, from which you can retrieve an electronic copy. You can find a list of these information policies on the left navigation bar just under "Campus Policy and Law".
Let us know what other kinds of policies you'd like to learn about, or if you have a documented policy you would be willing to have us add to the EDUCAUSE Library policy collection.
