Here is the UCLA Library policy that was sent to Hargis the same day he was suspended, September 14. It's cited in some of the articles. UCLA released a copy to AP.
====================================================== To: Unit Plus (for staff distribution) Please remind your staff that sending unsolicited emails containing political, religious, or even patriotic messages to groups such as units, departments, or other library lists is an unacceptable use of library email. This is true for messages which are original, forwarded, and responses to other messages. Recipients of these unsolicited email messages may have very different views and should not be subjected to what they may interpret as electronic harrassment by other library staff members. While this is particularly important now during this national crisis, it is a general policy.
