The remit of the UCD Digital Library is to maximise the availability of collections of primary source material for use within an academic and research environment by providing online access
to digitised copies of material held in several UCD repositories, as well as partnered external repositories. These digital surrogates represent authentic copies of the analogue originals and their use is governed by the terms and conditions prescribed by the parent repository or required by its extant deposit agreements, collection procedures or acquisition policies. All digital images are copyright of the UCD Digital Library (or participating repository if so noted) and may not be reproduced for any purpose without permission.
All digital images are copyright of the UCD Digital Library (or relevant rights holder, if so noted) and may not be reproduced for any purpose without permission. Where relevant, the administration of the copyright and all other intellectual property rights in the original content made available through UCD Digital Library rests with the parent repositories cited within the descriptive information and introductory sections for each collection.
This content is being made available solely for the purposes of research and education and as an alternative to directly accessing the analogue originals. Duplication of this content, other than as permitted by copyright legislation or authorised by the parent repository, is prohibited.
Use of the images for commercial purposes may be entertained by the parent repository, but can in no way be guaranteed, and should never be presumed. Please contact the UCD Digital Library for further details.
Any proposed use of the UCD Digital Library digital material for purposes other than research or education should be directed to UCD Digital Library, giving the image permalink and detailing the collection to which the image belongs and purpose for which the image is to be used. In addition, any proposed use of the original material for purposes other than research or education should be directed to the appropriate UCD repository. Contact details may be found in the Description tab for each collection. It is the responsibility of the user to seek and obtain permission for any subsequent reuse of UCD Digital Library content that is not for use within an academic or research environment, such as publication (including website and other electronic means), broadcasting and deposit in third party repositories from the copyright holder.
Reproduction of UCD Digital Library images or material
All digital images and material are copyright of the UCD Digital Library (or relevant rights holder, if so noted) and may not be reproduced for any purpose, including academic and research purposes, without permission.

The UCD Digital Library has obtained the agreement of the parent repositories to present these collections for research and academic usage, and has endeavoured to obtain the permission of all relevant rights owners for material being made available within the UCD Digital Library infrastructure.
Any putative use of material by UCD Digital Library without the permission of the relevant rights owners should be drawn to the attention of the UCD Digital Library as soon as possible.
