Alumni/Unaffiliated patron access to Exam Master
I got a question on the reference desk this morning from an alum wondering if she could use Exam Master. The short answer is yes, as long as the person accesses it from in the library the first time. They also have remote access once they've set up their account.
Exam Master is an account-based tool - people must create a personal account to use it, and on the library computers they may do so without needing to put in X.500 info. After they've created this account, they can use it to log in from anywhere. They might get hit with an X.500 screen when connecting to Exam Master through the library site from off campus, but in any case, they can go directly to the Exam Master website to login and bypass any possible X.500 issues.
I looked into whether this was an untoward loophole, and in reading the license and consulting with Katherine, this seems to be an allowed use. The unaffiliated people have to come into the library to set up an account, which covers them under walk-in users.
So! In case the question ever comes up, this is pretty much the only resource I know of where alums (or anyone) can have eventual remote access.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
