Rights and Reproduction

  • Materials may be digitally scanned or photocopied as long as the process does not harm originals.
  • All scans and photocopies are prepared by the College Archivist or archives assistants. Large orders may require several days to complete and charges may apply. In many cases, patrons may take their own photographs of items in the collection for use in their research; permission is granted on a case-by-case basis.
  • The College Archivist may decline to provide photocopies whenever adequate alternatives are available within digital collections or other media.
  • The College Archivist will assist researchers in determining if copyright restrictions apply although responsibility for copyright and obtaining necessary permissions rests with the researcher. Supplying a photocopy or photograph is not authorization to publish.
