Who has access to Humanities Commons?

Most of the material on Humanities Commons is public and can be read by anyone. Only Humanities Commons members, however, can join private groups, participate in discussions, and publish on blogs. Admins of individual sites on Humanities Commons can control the ability to read and comment on their sites.

What are my copyright responsibilities on Humanities Commons?

We hope you’ll take advantage of the site to share and discuss material with your colleagues. When you post content to the site, you are responsible for that content, as discussed in more detail in the Humanities Commons Terms of Service. Uploading or posting material to which you do not have or have not cleared the rights is a violation of our terms. If you are depositing an image, data set, or other item to our CORE repository, you must be the author or creator of that deposit. You can define the copyright restrictions on your CORE deposits by assigning a Creative Commons license to it in the upload form.
