Rights

The archives is made up of materials created by Washington & Jefferson College employees and materials received from various other sources. The origin of most of the materials is unclear. Transmission or reproduction of protected items beyond what is allowed by fair use requires the written permission of the copyright owners. Any researcher wishing to make such use of an image, document, film, or sound recording must assume all responsibility for clearing reproduction rights and for any infringement of Title 17 of the United States Code. 

To publish, use in film, mount on a website, or exhibit original material from the Archives, you must submit your request in writing and direct it to the College Archivist. This permission is granted for one-time use only, in one publication, exhibit, or activity, in one edition, and in one language. Each use of materials must be accompanied by proper credit to The Learned T. Bulman ’48 Historic Archives & Museum, Washington & JeffersonCollege.  In granting permission, the Historic Archives & Museum neither surrenders its rights to exhibit, publish, or otherwise reproduce the materials, nor to grant permission to others to do so.

Once your request to publish is approved, you will be sent a letter granting permission and providing correct citations.  Correct citations are required in all media. Some items in our archives may have additional usage fees or special permissions required by the donor. In most cases, these restrictions are clearly indicated at the time you make your selection. (Current faculty and staff are exempt from paying rights and reproduction fees.)

For more information, please contact Kelly Helm, College Archivist, at 1-724-223-6048 or khelm@washjeff.edu.
