Adjunct Faculty

When a patron states they are an Adjunct faculty, we need to request their appointment letters to be sent to with a subject line of “Adjunct Faculty”. These then are to be stored electronically in their Alma record. The note field should contain the terms of the appointment. There should also be a statistical category of Adjunct with the same information in the Note field. If a VUNet ID is not assigned, we can request one to be generated (normally this is not needed). Then, an Alma record is either created or updated to reflect this information, setting the expiration date to the ending of the appointment and the purge date for two years later. The User Group is assigned as “Faculty”.  And finally, on the EZProxy server, an exception is made to shibuser.txt to grant these users access to our electronic resources.
