Reproductions and Permissions
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, US Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials. 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 reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.”
Researchers interested in requesting reproductions of material from Amistad’s archival and printed collections should familiarize themselves and use the following policies and forms. Questions regarding duplication of material should be addressed to the Director of Library and Reference Services.
Permission to publish materials from the collections of the Amistad Research Center may be requested by making written application to the Director of Library and Reference Services, using the form listed below.
Except for those materials still under copyright and a select number of archival collections, there is no fee for the use of quotations or for citing materials from the collection. However, the Permission to Publish form must still be completed. The Amistad Research Center maintains a policy to charge a fee for the publication of each original image derived from its collections. Permissions fees are separate from all photo duplication costs. Fees for the publication of a large number of items may be negotiated.
The following form outlines the Center’s preferred citation format.
