For any additional use which exceeds personal use or fair use, permission from the copyright owner may be required.

Digital Commons @ Macalester Take-Down Policy

For previously published full-text materials (e.g. journal articles), the Macalester College Library reviews the copyright status of each item, and every effort is made to ensure that uploading and providing access through the institutional repository is in compliance with copyright holders' stated policies.

For unpublished materials (e.g. such as student honors projects, faculty or student conference presentations, etc.) assurances are received from the creator(s) during the submission process that, if necessary, permission has been obtained from owners of third-party copyrighted materials included in the unpublished work. In the instance of a mediated submission wherein a formal submission agreement is not received, it is assumed that the creator of the work is not knowingly submitting infringing material.

The Macalester College Library does not implement an extensive review of content submitted to Digital Commons for compliance with copyright law. Furthermore, the library fully supports the right of our student, faculty, and staff members to make fair use of copyrighted materials (as outlined in Title 17, §107 U.S.C.) in the creation of their own works. Digital Commons @ Macalester administrators will not make a fair use determination of submitted work; such a determination is considered to be the responsibility of the creator(s). However, in instances when it is readily and reasonably apparent that copyright law would be violated by posting a work, Digital Commons @ Macalester administrators may request that the creator(s) obtain permission from any relevant copyright holder(s).
