Terms of Use

The University of Adelaide Library is committed to making our special collections as accessible and usable as possible while taking into account certain restrictions, such as copyright and Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property.

Can I use the images or other content from Adelaide Connect?

You may use all of the material as allowed under copyright legislation. If you are located in Australia this includes for study, research, review and criticism as outlined in the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth). If you are located elsewhere you will need to refer to the copyright legislation relevant to your jurisdiction.

Where possible material has been released with broader reuse rights. This includes material with no known restrictions (in the case of material in the public domain) or material which has been released under a Creative Commons license.

Individual images and documents are accompanied by a rights statement. This is the best information about what you can and can’t do with a digital resource. If you have any questions about using material you have found on Adelaide Connect please contact us.

Attribution and acknowledgement

You should attribute the creator of any material you use where known.

If you are re-publishing digitised material, we ask that you acknowledge the University of Adelaide Library as the source, and where possible, provide a link back to the original resource.

Removal of material

Some material may have been made available on Adelaide Connect where the copyright owner was unable to be determined or located. The University of Adelaide Library does not claim any rights over this material and we welcome you to contact us if you have any information. If you are the copyright owner of material and wish it to be removed you can do so by filling out this form.

Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property

Some material in the University of Adelaide’s special collections shared on this site may include Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP). Copyright legislation and policy is, in some cases, inadequate for protection of ICIP as it can be collectively owned and rights of use and reproduction can outlast traditional terms defined in copyright legislation. Indigenous works may have additional legal and cultural issues, for instance because they include sensitive information, or information obtained without the consent of the relevant Indigenous people.

Users should consider ICIP rights in decisions around re-use of shared digital material, and consider their intended use carefully. You may need to seek cultural clearances from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, families, individuals or organisations before you reproduce some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander material.

The University of Adelaide Library cares for these valuable collections for the future, and shares them digitally in the interests of education, research, access and discovery.

If you identify material that should not be shared on this platform, contact us to discuss your concerns.

The material reflects various views and opinions that has been neither censored nor sanitised.  As a result, the content of some resources may offend or be distasteful to some people.  By including material in Adelaide Connect, the University of Adelaide is not endorsing the different views and opinions that may be expressed.
