Disclaimers

DAISYpedia Makes No Guarantee of the Validity of the Information It Contains.

DAISYpedia is intended to be an online collaborative information resource supported by the membership of the DAISY Consortium. It is intended to provide instructive and informative articles, step-by-step instructions and other useful knowledge about the DAISY Standards, DAISY tools, DAISY content and other related topics which may be of interest to the worldwide DAISY community.

Although the content may reviewed by people with expertise in one or more of these areas, DAISYpedia may contain content outside of their areas of expertise. Content available in DAISYpedia should therefore not necessarily be viewed as authoritative, but overall you should find the information contained within it to be valuable, accurate and reliable. However, DAISYpedia cannot guarantee the validity of all of the information found here. Please note that most other encyclopedias and reference works have disclaimers very similar to this.

Moderated Content and Peer Review

Methods of identifying and selecting new content and revisions of existing content are being developed. DAISYpedia editors use tools such as the Recent Changes and All Pages feeds to monitor new and modified content.

The DAISY Consortium, none of the contributors, sponsors, administrators, or anyone else connected with DAISYpedia can in any way be held responsible for the information contained in DAISYpedia or for your use of the information contained in or linked from it.

Comments

Disclaimers could be unflagged for all what I know, meaning that it looks like it was written and looked at by someone that seem to know what they were writing...

I (quote) wrote this using the Wikipedia disclaimer as a model. It has been flagged for a long time and someone else should review it and unflag it if OK.

This one is repeated/appears twice on the page. That needs to be fixed. Also, I have a question about the use of the word "encyclopedia" - are we really ready to call it an encyclopedia? I think we have a long way to go before we can call it that. Kathy, please let me know when the repeating problem is fixed and I'll make a few edits. Lynn

This disclaimer came from Wikipedia - hence usage of term 'encyclopedia'.

If the disclaimer came verbatim from Wikipedia, can we legally edit/change it? Some of the language is really over the top.

Disclaimers need to be modified. I see how Wikipedia needed to cover all the bases, but for our purposes...a bit frightening.

Please redo.

Will work on this.
