Take Down Policy and Procedures

Dartmouth College Library makes every effort to ensure that it has appropriate rights to provide access to content. Where possible, the Dartmouth College Library secures rights to use works that are in copyright. Parties who have questions or who wish to contest the use of specific works may contact:

Barbara DeFelice, Program Director for Scholarly Communication, Copyright, and Publishing
6025 Baker Library   

Hanover, NH 03755
Barbara.DeFelice@dartmouth.edu

With all such communications, please include:

  1. The full name and current contact information of the requester. NOTE: If an agent is providing the notification regarding copyright infringement, also include a statement that the agent is authorized to act on behalf of the owner.
  2. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity or which has created the privacy concern. This is the material to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the Library to locate the material is required. Providing URLs in your communication is the best way to help us locate content quickly.
  3. The reason for the request.

Dartmouth College Library will respond to all correspondence within 10 College business days. For copyright infringement concerns, if the Dartmouth College Library is not able to determine, within 10 College business days, that Dartmouth College Library is permitted to use the work(s) in question, the Library will cease providing access to the work until or unless it can determine that such uses are permitted.

For both copyright infringement and privacy concerns, the Library may work with Dartmouth College's Office of the General Counsel to make determinations about appropriate use. Depending on these determinations, the Library may remove the material(s) from its systems, restrict access to the material(s) in question, or continue to provide access to the material(s). Removing the work(s) in question may result in the Library ceasing to provide long-term preservation resources to the digitized content.
