Request for Reproduction of Special Collections Materials

Conditions of Reproduction

  1. Reproduction of materials is subject to the discretion of the Library. Materials may be restricted by donor limitations, copyright laws, and the fragile or valuable nature of the materials themselves. The Library reserves the right to limit the number of items to be reproduced or to decline to make a reproduction of any particular item.
  2. The work will be undertaken by the University’s staff, based upon its fee rates. Negatives made shall remain the property of Special Collections.
  3. The reproduction(s) requested are for the sole and scholarly use of the applicant, who agrees not to sell or transfer them to others, further reproduce them, publish any part of them or allow their use by other researchers without the express written prior consent of the Library and any other person or persons, institution or institutions whose consent the law requires.
  4. If permission to publish is granted, any publication or other public use of materials reproduced from Special Collections must credit the Library (e.g. “From the Eartha M. M. White Collection, Thomas G. Carpenter Library, University of North Florida.”)
  5. The applicant expressly assumes all responsibility for conforming to laws of copyright, literary property, right-to-privacy, libel and any other applicable statutes. In addition, the applicant agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the University, its officers and employees from any and all actions or claims resulting from the use of the materials listed on the verso of this page.

Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be “used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship or research.” If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of “fair use,” that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.

I have read, understood, and agree to abide by the above policy pertaining to the reproduction of materials held in the Special Collections section of the Thomas G. Carpenter Library of the University of North Florida.
