EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Two librarians are reported under investigation at the University of Oregon in what the administration calls the illegal release of 22,000 pages of communications with school presidents.
The Eugene Register-Guard reports (http://bit.ly/1JtJuMu) the documents were placed in the library's open archives without redacting student names, which the university assumes violates the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
In December, an unnamed professor requested and got a copy of the archives. So far, only one document has surfaced, in a blog run by economics Professor Bill Harbaugh. He hasn't said how he got it.
The university hasn't used his name. Spokesman Tobin Klinger said Thursday a deadline for returning the documents had passed but the school is talking with an unnamed professor believed to have the documents.
