Scholars Portal obtains rights from individual producers that give the repository control over some or all of the information deposited by the producer. The nature and scope of these rights varies by publisherproducer. In cases where the repository takes responsibility for the preservation of information, the rights include provisions for Scholars Portal to receive a local copy of the information and host it in perpetuity. This local loading allows Scholars Portal to completely own and control the digital copy of the content given to them by the Producer regardless of changes in the publishing world or changes in the library’s subscription policies. In some cases, the repository obtains the right to modify information in order to ensure long-term preservation and accessibility.
