Research Repository: Deposit Agreement

Research Repository Deposit Agreement


I wish to deposit my material in the University of Limerick Institutional Repository. Research referred to below as "Work" is covered by this agreement and when I deposit my Work, whether personally or through an assistant or other agent, I agree to the following: 


Rights granted to the Institutional Repository through this agreement are entirely non-exclusive. I am free to publish the Work in its present version or future versions elsewhere. 

I agree that University of Limerick may electronically store, copy or translate the Work to any medium or format for the purpose of future preservation and accessibility. The University of Limerick is not under any obligation to reproduce or display the Work in the same formats or resolutions in which it was originally deposited. 


I understand that work deposited in the institutional repository will be accessible to a wide variety of people and institutions
- including automated agents 
- via the World Wide Web 

I understand that once the Work is deposited, metadata will be incorporated into public access catalogues. This citation to the Work 
will always remain visible, although the author retains the right to update the Work. Removal of the item can be made after discussion with 
the institutional repository administrators. 


  • That I have the authority of the authors to make this agreement and to hereby give University of Limerick the right to make available the Work in the way described above. 
  • That I have exercised reasonable care to ensure that the Work is original, and does not to the best of my knowledge breach any laws including defamation, libel, copyright and data protection. 
  • University of Limerick does not hold any obligation to take legal action on behalf of the Depositor, or other rights holders, in the event of breach of intellectual property rights, or any other right, in the material deposited.
