Deposit Agreement

To administer UCIspace @ the Libraries and preserve its contents for future use, the UCI Libraries requires certain permissions and warrants from the author(s) and/or copyright owner.

By signing this agreement, I, ______________________________, represent that I understand and agree to terms described in "About UCIspace @ the Libraries".

I grant to the UC Irvine Libraries the perpetual, non-exclusive right to display and distribute the content described below, including the descriptive information (metadata), in any format or medium worldwide and royalty-free, including, but not limited to, publication over the Internet, for non-commercial use. I understand that the Libraries will make the content available to researchers according to the terms of a license I select. I also grant to the Libraries the rights to archive, copy, and/or convert submissions for security or preservation purposes.

If I am the copyright owner, by accepting this agreement, I still retain copyright to my work and do not give up the right to submit the work to publishers or other repositories.

If I am not the copyright owner, I represent that the copyright owner has given me formal permission to deposit the work and that I have obtained the unrestricted permission of the copyright owner to grant the UC Irvine Libraries the rights required by this agreement. For this material, I will clearly identify third-party owned material and acknowledge it within the text or content of the submission. I understand that if copyright terms for, or ownership of, the submission change, it is my responsibility to notify the UC Irvine Libraries of these changes.

I also represent the following:

  • The submission does not contain any confidential information, proprietary information of others or export controlled information.
  • There are no restrictions or required publication delays on the distribution of the submission.
  • The information I provide about the submission is accurate.

I understand that the goal of UCIspace @ the Libraries is to provide perpetual access to deposited materials. However, under certain limited circumstances, content may be withdrawn. In such an event, the descriptive information (metadata) will be retained and the removal of the material noted.

If the submission is based upon work that has been sponsored or supported by an agency or organization other than UC Irvine, I understand that I must fulfill any right of review or other obligations required by the contract or agreement with such an agency or organization before depositing into to UCIspace @ the Libraries.

I indemnify and hold the UC Irvine Libraries harmless for any losses, claims, damages, awards, penalties, or injuries incurred, including reasonable attorney's fees, which arise from any claim by any third party of an alleged infringement of copyright or any other property right arising out of the use of the deposited materials.
