Copyright and Licensing Considerations for Campus Documents and Publications

In most cases, campus documents and publications are "works for hire" of the University or exist in the public domain and can be archived and distributed without constraint via RED. Where items are not public domain, the RED Team selects licensing that fits the collection. For existing collections, we are happy to review copyright and licenses at any time with collection stakeholders.

The RED Team makes every effort to ensure that all works submitted to RED are archived and disseminated in accordance with United States copyright law, University policy, and the wishes of content creators.
