Title: York Digital Library: Digital Library Policy

Pages: all
Date Released: 12 Feb 2009

URI for Output: https://vle.york.ac.uk/bbcswebdav/xid-324531_3

Summary of contents:
This document provides the policies of York Digital Library; the digital library has stated policies on:

  • Metadata
  • Code and documentation
  • Resources
  • Content [scope]
  • Submission
  • Rights
  • Preservation

York Digital Library has chosen to use Creative Commons (NC ND BY) licenses for its Metadata, documentation, and resources (where possible).

Comments:

Although the sample policies are in themselves useful – covering things like takedown policy – the explicit use of Creative Commons for the work of the digital library team is worth noting both for its use and for the instituional view it indicates.
