Operational Policy for Mountain Scholar
This policy pertains to all users of the CSU Libraries’ digital repository, Mountain Scholar.
The digital repository preserves, protects, and makes generally accessible content of a scholarly nature, primarily from CSU constituents. The content shall conform to established standards and professional best practices, and must be compatible with the CSU Core Data Dictionary. All content shall be presented in a simple, uniform, consistent manner to all users. In addition, as operational resources are very limited, the digital repository must be managed and operated extremely efficiently. Therefore, the operations of Mountain Scholar, including the form of presentation of content, shall be the purview solely of the CSU Libraries and in accordance with these principles, and may not be personalized or customized by users.
This policy was approved by the CSU Libraries Management Team on July 22, 2010.
Questions regarding this policy may be addressed to Ms. Dawn Paschal, Associate Dean for Research, Digital Library and Data Services, CSU Libraries.
