What is a Copyright Declaration form (TDF)?

The author or institution requires the borrower to sign a TDF (Thesis Declaration Form), also known as a CD (Copyright Declaration). By signing the TDF or CD, the reader agrees to recognize that copyright of the dissertation resides with either the author or the university to which the dissertation was submitted and that the reader will not quote or derive information from the work without prior written consent of the author or university.
