The UNM Copyright Resource guide is designed as a basic informational resource for the University of New Mexico community. It is not a substitute for legal advice. Instead, it provides a framework for understanding and working with legal issues, including lawfully using and sharing copyrighted works, as well as protecting our own creative works.

Academic Integrity

Student users of UNM systems certify that they are authorized by UNM to use the NetID, password, and/ or other authentication credentials to access those systems. Students further certify that they understand the prohibited actions as described in UNM’s  Academic Dishonesty  policy and that any violations of this policy may be charged under the  Student Code of Conduct  in accordance the  Student Grievance Procedure, all of which can be found in  The Pathfinder  (UNM Student Handbook).


Protecting privacy and confidentiality of UNM records and research requires information security awareness and vigilance by all students, faculty, and staff.

The Information Security & Privacy Office (ISPO) is responsible for the development and maintenance of the University’s Information Security Program, and providing institution-wide, platform independent professional services.
