Risks: None


  • Currently, material is taken only from other sources of open content at IU; only those wishing to share their content publicly will be included. As the gateway continues to be developed and more content is included, intellectual property rights may need to be assessed and terms of use set for materials provided through the site.
  • Some faculty, researchers, and content providers may not be able to make their content available because of contractual obligations.
  • The site does not include open source/systems. A note provides access to the major open source initiatives with which IU is involved.
