Materials in the collection including books, manuscripts, archival documents, photographs, maps, architectural drawings, and ephemera may be reproduced in either digital or print format. The availability of reproductions is subject to the materials' size, condition, and copyright restrictions. Requests for reproductions may be denied if such work would damage the materials to be copied.
More information is available on the Special Collections website.
Once you have ordered a print or scan, or have downloaded an image from our website, you cannot use it for anything other than classroom use, student projects, personal display, or research without requesting formal permission.
For all other projects (for example, publication, broadcast, products, commercial display, websites, etc.), you must submit a Permission for Use Form to obtain permission to use the photographs. Once you have submitted your application, you will receive a letter granting you permission to use the image in your project. It will give you the credit line that you are required to use with the image. You will be billed by Special Collections for any applicable use fees.
