Author Addendum

The UMD Libraries have provided a template Author’s Addendum that you may wish to use so your publisher can  acknowledge your grant of a nonexclusive equitable access license to the University of Maryland. You can download the template Author’s Addendum as an editable PDF or .docx file below.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to with questions. While Libraries staff can help answer your questions about the Equitable Access Policy and UMD’s DRUM, it cannot provide legal advice or negotiate with publishers on your behalf.
