Can you give me permission to use an item that I found on the Library's website in my project or publication?

As a publicly supported institution, the Library generally does not own the rights to materials in its collections. You will need to determine for yourself whether or not an item is protected by copyright or in the public domain, and then satisfy any copyright or use restrictions when publishing or distributing materials from our collections. Transmission or reproduction of protected items beyond what is allowed by fair use or other exemptions requires written permission from the copyright holder.

For more information, see: How do I know whether I can use materials from the Library’s collections? and  Using Items from the Library’s Website: Understanding Copyright.
