What is the Library's reproduction policy?
The University of Delaware Library will permit a reasonable amount of photocopying from its print and manuscript holdings, but reserves the right to restrict copying from any of its collections and to deny requests for copies. Scans or digital photographs also require permission from a librarian. Special Collections is only able to accommodate scanning requests on a limited basis.
Not all materials may be reproduced. Reproductions of documents in the Special Collections are for personal research only. Copies may not be donated to other repositories by the recipient, and may not be further reproduced without explicit permission of the University of Delaware Library.
Under the provisions of the Copyright Act (Title 17, U.S. Code), which governs photocopies and other reproductions, the photocopy or reproduction may not be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a researcher makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that researcher may be liable for copyright infringement.
Applications to reproduce Special Collections materials must be submitted through the "Application to Reproduce Special Collections Materials" form.
For more information please see Reproducing and Photographing Special Collections Materials Policies and Procedures.
Permission to reproduce or to photograph materials does not imply permission to publish.
