The University of Calgary digital collections support teaching and research through access to unique digitized and born digital resources.


The digital collections include both works protected by copyright and materials that are now in the public domain. In most cases, the University of Calgary does not hold the copyright for copyright-protected materials. Rights have been retained by the original creator, the creator’s designate, or assigned to a rights holder.


The University of Calgary Libraries and Cultural Resources will provide materials for individual study and research purposes under fair dealing and library exceptions in the Canadian Copyright Act. Unless indicated by a Creative Commons or other open license, patrons may not publish, copy, alter or otherwise use copyright-protected content without written permission from the copyright holder(s).


Materials in the public domain are no longer subject to copyright and can be used without permission.


Libraries and Cultural Resources appreciates attribution to our digital collections when using materials from the site.


All those who access and obtain copies of materials in these collections are responsible for any infringement of copyright or other applicable laws.


The University of Calgary takes all matters related to intellectual property, privacy and ownership seriously and acts in accordance with the relevant laws. Every required and appropriate effort has been made to acquire copyright clearance for copyright-protected materials in the digital collections. If you are a rights holder and have concerns about the use of a specific resource, please contact digitze@ucalgary.ca.


The University of Calgary has the right to refuse, limit, or cancel any orders placed on the Digital Collections site. Patrons must agree to additional terms of use prior to receiving copies of or access to certain materials.
