Why Use This Notice?

This Notice indicates to the public that the record and/or metadata is incomplete. Visibly identifying missing attribution within collections is the first step towards correcting existing attribution to include: contributors, collaborators, other authors and/or communities of origin.

We are using this notice to clearly identify this material so that it can be updated, or corrected by communities of origin. Our institution is committed to collaboration and partnerships to address this problem of incorrect or missing attribution.
