Materials in the MSU IR are considered permanent in nature. However, items raising legal issues, containing plagiarized content, retracted by authors/publishers, or considered breaches of confidentiality may be considered for withdrawal. Because an MSU IR item that has been openly available may have been cited, a statement will be added to the item record when the item is requested to be removed. This statement will include the original metadata (for verification) plus one of the above withdrawal statements in place of the link to the object. Withdrawn items will be removed from public view, but not deleted from the repository.
