PAPR Terms of Service

PAPR provides a directory of information about individual print archiving programs that has been provided by program participants or gathered by CRL (the "Directory"). PAPR also provides information about materials that have been archived ("Archived Titles") using metadata that has been provided by the participating archiving institutions (the "Archiving Institution(s)"). The Directory and the Archived Titles are known collectively as "the Datasets". PAPR is provided by the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) and operated by the California Digital Library (CDL), known collectively as "the System Providers".

Agreement to these Terms

Your use of PAPR signifies your agreement to these Terms.

Content of PAPR

The System Providers will use reasonable effort to ensure that the information in PAPR is current and free of errors. However, the System Providers do not guarantee the accuracy or fitness for purpose of the Datasets, and provide no warranty, express or implied, in relation to such Datasets including:

  • text on the interface and web pages;
  • information included or referred to in any website to which a link may be provided within or along with any such Datasets; and
  • any information contained in the Datasets or downloaded as Reports from PAPR.

You may download Reports from PAPR and use Datasets at your own risk. The System Providers shall not be liable for any loss or damage incurred by you through your access to or use of PAPR and/or Reports, including without limitation, any damage to your computer hardware, data, information or your business that results from such access or use.

The Archived Titles data contained in Datasets is owned by the Archiving Institution that provided it and is subject to a separate PAPR Record Use Policy. You agree not to re-sell or otherwise provide Reports or Archived Titles data to any other organization.

The System Providers will make reasonable efforts to ensure that PAPR is updated regularly and accurately. The System Providers and/or Archiving Institutions may change the content at any time on any schedule they choose.

Access to PAPR is permitted on a temporary basis, and the System Providers reserve the right to withdraw or amend the service provided on PAPR without notice (see below). The System Providers will not be liable if for any reason PAPR is unavailable at any time or for any period. Notwithstanding the above, users will be provided with at least ten (10) days notice of any scheduled downtime of PAPR.

If the need arises, the System Providers may suspend access to PAPR, or close it indefinitely.
