The purpose of GustieScholar, the Gustavus Institutional Repository (IR), is to provide faculty, staff, and students a way to showcase their scholarship and make it available to the world. It is maintained by the staff of the Folke Bernodotte Memorial Library and stored in the Gustavus Archives Digital Collections. Works chosen for inclusion in the IR will be accessible to anyone and discoverable through search engines.
In order to be included in the IR, faculty must either a) hold the copyright to the work and have not assigned exclusive publication rights to a publisher or b) must have an agreement with a copyright-holding publisher that allows public deposit of the work in some form. The SHERPA/RoMEO database offers a summary of many journal publishers’ permissions granted during a copyright transfer. If you are unsure of the work’s copyright status and whether you have the right to make a version of it freely available, we will do what we can to help you make that determination. Authors must also comply with copyright and the fair use of copyrighted material used within their works.
If you find content on GustieScholar that you believe is not in compliance with its copyright or the fair use of the copyrighted material, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
