Permission Form for Student Submissions to Scholars' Bank
The University of Oregon Libraries provides a digital archive called Scholars' Bank for the faculty and students of the University of Oregon. Scholars' Bank is available at https://scholarsbank.uoregon.edu and it is also searchable through Google and other web indexing services. Theses and dissertations reside in the archive, along with other department-sanctioned student work. You are invited to have your final thesis, dissertation or project submitted to the archive so that it will be freely and publicly available on the Web.
NOTES REGARDING FILE TRANSFER
This form accomodates the transfer of PDFs that do not exceed 50MB. Even if your file exceeds this size or employs other formats, you will still need to use this form to grant permission as described below, and provide metadata about your project.
For transfer of larger files and other formats such as multimedia files, please use UO collaboration software such as OneDrive or other appropriate cloud storage system to share files with the Scholars Bank Manager, email@example.com. In some cases, a USB flash drive may be the best choice.
