This is our most current policy and supersedes any "Use Restrictions" note in the catalog which says that Schlesinger's permission is required for use of images.
If researchers wish to publish, reproduce, or otherwise make any use of an image in the Schlesinger Library’s collections that requires permission from the copyright holder(s) of the image, it is the researcher’s responsibility to obtain all such permissions.
In most cases, the Schlesinger Library does not hold the copyright for images in the collections. For photographs, copyright is often retained by the photographer. It is the nature of historical collections that copyright or other information about restrictions may be difficult or even impossible to determine.
