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.

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.
