Takedown Policy

Mountain Scholar Logo

Content submission to Mountain Scholar is permanent. Under certain circumstances an item may be removed from view (e.g., due to a violation of the submission agreement).

To preserve the historical record, all such transactions will be traced and visible via a provenance statement. The content of the note should be one of the following:

  • “Removed from view by legal order.”
  • “Removed from view by Colorado State University Libraries.”
  • “Removed from view at request of the author.”

The tombstone metadata for the work/creation will still be visible to those who already have its persistent URL, but neither the work/creation or its metadata will be searchable or available for harvesting by services such as Google.

(Revised September 2019)
