Changes in Aleph500 Security and Access forms

Per email from Francine Dupont -Crocker on 12/1/10:

I'm writing to alert you to several changes recently made to the Aleph500 Access and Security Policy, its related access and security request forms, and the Aleph500 Access and Security wiki page.

First, the Aleph500 Access and Security Policy and its related access and security request forms have all been given a new look with the incorporation of the Libraries logo and brand styling. At some point in the future, we also hope to make all forms interactive (i.e. you will be able to fill out the form by typing in the information online).

Second, due to recent revisions to the University's policies on data security and management, we have revised the references made to those policies in both our Aleph500™ Access and Security Policy (see "Basis of the Policy" section) and our Compliance Statement for Access to Patron Records and Patron Transactions in the Aleph500 System (see Section A).

Finally, the Aleph500 Access and Security wiki page has been completely revamped with improved information to help you better manage your employees' Aleph500 account access.

Because of these changes and the need to ensure that our agreements comply with University policies, we can no longer accept previous versions of the Aleph500 access and security request forms. The best way to ensure that you are using the most current forms is to download them directly from the Aleph500 Access and Security wiki page each time you need to submit a request.

Please take a moment to review this updated information and feel free to contact me with any questions.
