IGS Non-attribution Policy

This website, course content, and classroom discussions contain educational material designed to promote academic freedom and intellectual debate by students, faculty, and guests. No positions taken necessarily reflect the views of the University, etc. No further dissemination is authorized.

Every effort will be made to protect the legitimate interests of copyright holders and to meet both their requirements for control/accountability of access and the needs of the College to ensure that assigned materials are in fact readily accessible to students when they are needed. Accordingly, the primary connection to all readings procured through the Library’s electronic resources is via the permanent links provided by the Library through their library website, while reliable backup links are provided to files locally stored on this access-controlled web server. Images used on this website are either in the public domain, covered by GNU licenses (in most cases provided by Wikipedia), or covered by rules governing parody and fair use.

Presentations by guest speakers, seminar leaders, students and panelists, including renowned public officials and scholars, constitute an important part of the curricula. So that these guests, as well as faculty and other University officials, may speak candidly, we must offer assurances that their presentations will be held in strict confidence. These assurances derive from a policy of non-attribution that is morally binding on all who attend. Without the express permission of the speaker, nothing he or she says will be attributed to that speaker directly or indirectly in the presence of anyone who was not authorized to attend the lecture.
