Shapiro: Research open to communist
By PERRY CLARK
University President Harold Shapiro yester-
day affirmed that the University will not
estrict the access of visiting scholars from
communist nations to research materials.
Shapiro made his comments yesterday
following the disclosure that two FBI agents
were on campus last week, seeking information
on the research activities of a visiting Soviet
"IN GENERAL, my reaction is that the
University, unless legally obligated to do so,
ought to not release information about students
without their permission, or about faculty
members," Shapiro said.
Jon Heise, the director of the International
Center, the University's liaison with foreign
students, said the incident last week was the
first time he has been aware that federal agen-
ts visited the University for such a purpose.

the Reagan administration's efforts to restrict
the access of communist scholars to research
material. The University, however, has not
cooperated with the Washington officials,

library, where the Soviet scholar studies, and,
asked for records of what materials the
professor checked out. The librarian, Maurita
Holland, reportedly refused to give the agents
information, citing a University regulation
which prohibits the release of such infor-
Shapiro said he disapproved of the FBI's
method of gathering the information and said
he would prefer they consult him before
seeking information from the University's
libraries or other units.
"IT DOES POINT to a problem," he said.
"When people want information, they don't ask
the president, they just go all around the
system." Shapiro said there are regulatory
limits on how much information the University
can release on the activities of a scholar
without gaining the permission of the in-
The FBI office in Detroit confirmed that
agents had questioned the librarian but refused
to comment further. An FBI spokesman
