Faculty Scholarship Repository Collection Policy


The Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law Faculty Scholarship Repository is a service of the Ross-Blakley Law Library that provides information, and where available access to, the scholarly work of the College of Law’s faculty. Questions about the repository can be submitted to Ask a Law Librarian.

Criteria for Repository Inclusion

The author or creator is affiliated with the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law (COL). The repository houses scholarly publications authored or created by full-time current, retired, and emeritus COL faculty. The publications of deceased faculty who retired from the COL are also included. Adjunct faculty, visiting faculty, students, and faculty that have left the COL for a different educational institution are not included in the repository. 

The work must be creative, scholarly in nature, and research oriented. The repository includes only scholarly publications, including articles, books, and book chapters. The repository does not include newspaper articles, blog posts, presentations, or other similar materials.

The item is suitable for indefinite retention and is in a permanent format. Items that are transitory or have temporary value are not included in the repository (e.g. working papers or drafts). Unpublished and personal works are also not included in the repository.

Appropriate permissions have been secured. The Law Library posts works in the repository with appropriate permissions. Works with copyright or privacy issues will not be available in the repository.

Author Rights

The author retains the copyright for all works included in the repository. The author is free to reuse the content, but it is their responsibility to check the terms of the publication agreement if a document published in the repository is published elsewhere.

Revision or Removal

To request that a work included in the repository be revised or removed, please submit a request to Ask a Law Librarian.
