The reason those are on the .page-resources was a concern by the 
authors of the incorporated material that their efforts would be 
unrecognized if the resource is hidden inside a .page. The initial 
suggested remedy was to have the author name printed out. We were able 
to tone that down to just a  CAT button, which is all that the students 
are going to see.

Given the author concerns, the option would have to be with the author 
rather than the user.
