Terms of Use – Copyright
The University of Alberta identifies information resources that record the history and development of Canada's prairie provinces and makes those resources available on the Peel's Prairie Provinces (Peel) website. The resources are made available for public viewing at no cost.

Certain titles may be listed in the database, but the contents of those works may be unavailable on the website, where the University of Alberta does not have authority to display that material or we have otherwise been unable to digitize them. Further, the University of Alberta's entitlement to display the digitized materials appearing on the website does not extend to providing copies of specific content of the website to the general public, or to otherwise allow reproduction of material from the website without permission of the copyright owner(s). Therefore, we regret we cannot respond to requests from the public for reproduction of material on the site.

Where copyright in the material has expired the content is in the public domain and free to use without permission. In no way do these terms of use restrict a user’s fair dealing rights.

If you are aware of errors or omissions related to the copyright of any materials, or if you have questions or comments, please contact us.
