 U.S. Copyright law test

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 other reproduction.  One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or other 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 other reproduction for purposes in excess of “fair use,” that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

Policy on Digitized Collections

Digitized collections are made accessible for research purposes.  We have indicated what we know about copyright and rights of privacy, publicity or trademark in our finding aids.  However, due to the nature of archival collections, it is not always possible to identify this information.  We are eager to hear from any rights owners, so that we may provide accurate information.  When a rights issue needs to be addressed, upon request we will remove the material from public view while we review the claim.

Inquiries about these policies can be directed to:

Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library
65 Olden Street
Princeton, NJ  08540
