Repository Policies

Takedown policy

If you consider that content in the Digital Library infringes UK law, please notify Leeds University Library by emailing digital@leeds.ac.uk. Please include the URL of the record, the reason for the proposed withdrawal and your relationship to the record.

  1. Your email will be acknowledged by Digital Library staff within seven working days of receipt, following an initial assessment.
  2. Where grounds for withdrawal are plausible, the material will be withdrawn from public view.
  3. It may be necessary for us to seek legal advice before the issue can be fully resolved.
  4. If the request is well founded, the material will be permanently withdrawn from the Digital Library. In some cases a metadata record may remain. This will be agreed on a case by case basis.
