Project Deposit Agreement

The Deposit Agreement which can be downloaded here was designed for the purposes of the project. The agreement accommodates the fact that the project is a temporary arrangement (funded for 2 years) and that the depositor is making an agreement with two repositories (the two project partners: the Universities of Oxford and Manchester). This means that the Agreement will require some changes for more general use. The project is planning to produce more general templates for gifts and deposits in due course.

The agreement contains clauses which give the repository licence to copy materials for digital preservation purposes without infringing the rights of the owner of any intellectual property rights in the materials.

The agreement is available in ODT, PDF and RTF formats.
