Any use of these images is restricted by copyright law. Where we do not hold copyright, it is the responsibility of researchers to locate and secure copyright permission prior to potentially infringing uses.

We charge fees for use of our holdings. In most cases, we also require that patrons order a high-resolution scan, a color transparency or a print.

We also require proper credit where our holdings are used. Formatting examples are available.

A complimentary copy of the final publication in any medium using reproductions of Briscoe Center for American History materials must be donated to the Briscoe Center.
