3.1.3 - The repository shall have a Collection Policy or other document that specifies the type of information it will preserve, retain, manage and provide access to.

Since UC3 is primarily a service provider with no direct curatorial responsibilities, it does not have a collection policy for Merritt in the traditional sense. However, Merritt is fully agnostic to content genre, type, and structure, and imposes no prescriptive eligibility requirements for submission. Thus, Merritt is an appropriate curation environment for all content acquired or created through the implementation of local campus collection policies and practices.
