Newbie Question on access control


I am going to be moving from the Netscape commercial server to OpenLDAP, and while I have the ACIs in Netscape down pretty well, I'm having a bit of trouble duplicating the access on OpenLDAP.

Right off the bat, I want to grant read access to everybody to those entries in the "ou=people,o=linfield.edu" subtree, but I need to restrict access to that students who have elected  to keep directory info private don't have LDAP entries that are generally readable.

Here's the access rule I wrote:

access to dn.subtree="ou=people,o=linfield.edu"
by * read

The effect of the access rule, however, is to deny access to all entries.  What am I doing wrong?
