Re: Internet agreements

Surely the more interesting question is to what extent one person clicking
on an agreement can bind the library. If the library patron binds only
himself, then there may not be a problem. But if that click binds the
library (or the state), there is certainly a problem. Does it depend
if the person clicking is a staff member or officer? Are faculty 
officers? With respect to the patron binding himself, does it matter
that (s)he isn't the vendor's customer?
