Library Special Collections Duplication Policy
UCLA Library Special Collections (LSC) duplication policies.
Patrons may not publish, post to the Internet or otherwise distribute copies of any special collections holdings that fall under U.S. Copyright law without appropriate permission. Provision of copies of LSC holdings does not in any way imply permission to utilize materials for reasons other than personal research and scholarly use. If an intended use will extend beyond personal research purposes and a patron wishes to publish or distribute copies of materials in LSC’s collections, please note the following:
Please contact AskLSC@library.ucla.edu(opens in a new tab) if you wish to publish material under the copyright of the University of California Regents or to obtain a licensing agreement. We will issue licensing agreements for commercial and non-commercial uses. Licensing fees may apply.
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 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.
