Allow limited edits to active directory

Our HR department is requesting access to edit users in active directory.  I have no issue with this, but I want to restrict them to certain fields.  They should only be able to edit the address, telephone and organization tabs.  It would also be nice if they could edit a few fields on the general tab.

I know how to delegate permissions to users/groups in AD.  I just can't figure out how to restrict access to what I just explained.  Is this possible?

You have to give them rights to just those attributes.  They would also still have to use ADUC to edit.  

Do they already have an HR database?

I'd think about a third party (or build your own) front end, something like directory manager

Yea, I think you're right.  A 3rd party would be much easier for non-IT people to navigate.  I will take a look at ithicos and a few others.  Thanks for the input!
