UNLV Take Down notice

Copyright, Use, and Take-Down Policy

Disclaimer: The University of Nevada, Las Vegas University Libraries provides broad public access to collections as a contribution to education and scholarship. Much of this content is protected by the U.S. Copyright Law (Title 17, U.S.C.). Use of the materials may also be subject to other legal rights, for example, rights of publicity, privacy rights, or other legal interests. Transmission or reproduction of materials protected by copyright beyond that allowed by fair use requires the written permission of the copyright owners. As noted, additional permissions may also be required. The UNLV University Libraries can not authorize any use or reproduction for commercial purposes when the others hold the copyright. Please see the Special Collections' page on Reproductions and Use (https://www.library.unlv.edu/speccol/research_and_services/reproductions).

The UNLV University Libraries makes digital versions of collections accessible in the following situations: they are in the public domain; the rights were transferred to UNLV; donors provided permission to make materials accessible; materials are made accessible for education and research purposes as a legal fair use, or; there are no known restrictions on use.  

Responsibility for determining the rights status of an item(s) and securing any necessary permissions ultimately rests with those persons wishing to use the item(s).


Take-Down Policy: Parties who have questions or who wish to contest the use of specific works may contact the Director of Special Collections at special.collections@unlv.edu.

Communication should include:

1. The full name and contact information of the requestor. If contacting us about copyright infringement, please identify yourself as the copyright owner, or include a statement that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.

2. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the Library to locate the material. Providing URLs in your communication is the best way to help us locate content quickly.

3. The reason for the request.

For both copyright infringement and privacy concerns, the Library may work with UNLV's Office of the General Counsel to make determinations about appropriate use. Depending on these determinations, the Libraries 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 Libraries ceasing to provide long-term preservation resources to the digitized content.
