About This Directory
This electronic directory contains information about students, faculty, and staff at Penn State. In addition to the information commonly found in telephone books, this directory also contains information such as e-mail addresses and links to Personal Web pages, if they exist. In order to use this directory, your browser must support on-line forms. Note that information obtained here is not guaranteed to be accurate. Fields containing information such as e-mail addresses, Web page URLs, and fax numbers are user-editable and may not accurately reflect employee data supplied by Human Resources or student data supplied by the Registrar's Office. Use this data at your own risk. For more information, see Directory Services in the document, Your Guide to Information Technology Services at Penn State.
How to Search
Enter the information of the person you want to look up in the box, choose long or short results and then click on the "Search" button. Do not include any commas, periods etc. Do not use nicknames in the name fields. (ie. "mike" will not work in the "name" fields for "michael"). You can also use the wildcard character "*" to search. (ie. "micha*" will work for "michael"). Matching in ldap is done on a word-by-word basis (ie. "john" does not match "john-son" but "john*" will match "john-son" ). Note that "name" is not restricted to that of an individual. It can also be, in part or full, that of a facility or an organization, e.g. "accounts" would return information on the "Accounts Office." However, not every department has an entry in this database.
Some information about students and employees is considered directory information. Directory information may be publicly shared by the institution unless the individual takes formal action to restrict its release. See The Confidentiality and Security of Student Records and Policy AD11: University Policy on Confidentiality of Student Records. If you prefer not to be listed in Penn State's phone directory, you must request removal of your information.
