TRU Library needs your permission to add your work to TRUSpace.

When you submit your work, you will be required to read, sign and return to the Library a non-exclusive licence which gives the TRU Library permission to make a copy of your work openly-accessible to the public through TRUSpace, in perpetuity. People will be able to use your work for non-commercial purposes as long as they provide appropriate acknowledgment and do not alter the work in any way.

This licence does not transfer the copyright for the work to the library.
