Archives Duplication Policy
The following policies apply to use and duplication of photographs and other materials duplicated from the Archives and Historical Collection.
- Patrons will be required to sign and return our standard photographic agreement form which stipulates your one-time use for these images and provides correct credit lines for use in publication.
- While many patrons initially request images for personal research, patrons are required to request permission for any subsequent publication in advance of such use.
- Subsequent use of images is only allowed with the completion of a separate photographic agreement.
- Images are not to be copied or shared under any circumstances.
- Patrons are legally liable for any misuse of the digital images once they are provided.
- In some cases, handling of fragile material may cause damage, and duplication may not be possible. Such decisions will be made at the discretion of staff on a case-by-case basis. You will be asked to sign and comply with our digital photography agreement.
