Archive Policy

The Daily Campus does not remove content, including but not limited to articles, columns, editorials, photos and letters to the editor, from online archives once the content has been published in any format, though all final decisions rest with the editor in chief. The Daily Campus also has no control over the ranking in commercial search engines, like Google.

Updates or corrections may be added if the material is factually inaccurate, but original content will not be removed. In the event of a correction, a note detailing the date and time of the change will be included.

Procedure: To make a complaint that archived content is inaccurate, contact the editor in chief via e-mail at dc@smu.edu with the following information:

-Name, telephone number and e-mail address

-The URL address of the content in question

-The specific content that is inaccurate and an explanation of how the information is inaccurate

In the case of content published more than one year ago, the complaintant must provide reasonable proof to the editor that the content in question is no longer accurate. For example, a copy of expungement papers should be provided in case any criminal charges are dropped. If published more than a year ago, contested quotes are highly unlikely to be amended without written or audio documentation.

If the contested content was published less than a year ago, normal internal procedures for checking the material’s accuracy will apply and you may be asked to provide written documentation.

The request will be reviewed and checked by the editor and if the editor determines it to be valid, an update or correction will be posted.
