Using photographs

Most photographs from the Local History Collections, as well as those on deposit from other organizations, may be duplicated. Some images may be restricted due to the condition of the original; gift or purchase agreements; privacy and publicity rights; and/or copyright issues.

While the Local History Room will provide all known information about a photograph, determining copyright status is the responsibility of the user.

Those requesting photographs will be required to sign a publishing and credit agreement. There is no charge for the reproduction of images from the Local History Collections, but we do require proper credit and a copy of the publication or other work in which the images are used. Users may not publish or share the Library’s images without written permission.

Please contact the Archivist with any questions or comments.
