Photo and Document Reproduction


Use of Photo and Documents


Please Email the Museum for information on fees for research, image reproduction, use, mailing, new photography, and digital manipulation of scanned images. All fees are in U.S. dollars and must be paid in advance before work will proceed.

Persons interested in publishing Museum photos in any media must complete an “Application for Permission to Publish” form. In it applicants agree to comply with the Museum’s Conditions for Reproduction of Photographic Images.

The Museum does not lend its photographs.

The Museum reserves the right to refuse any request for the reproduction of its images or research materials


Photo Processing Time


Every effort will be made to complete a photo order in a timely manner. Be advised that staff may not be able to provide immediate assistance due to work on previous orders or other Museum activities. If this is the case, staff will provide an estimate of the time it may take to complete the order.


Conditions for Reproduction of Photographic Images and Documents


All photographic reproductions shall be for an approved, one-time, one-edition use only. Requests for additional uses, editions, or formats shall be made in writing to the photo archivist.

Photographs may not be altered (e.g., cropped, overprinted, bled) in any way, unless authorized in writing by the photo archivist.

The credit line, “Courtesy of the Beatty Museum and Historical Society" shall be attributed to each image reproduced.

One complete, complimentary copy of the publication or other commercial product shall be furnished to the Museum, unless the image was not used. All expenses for shipping and handling are to be borne by the applicant.

In authorizing the publication of an image, the Museum does not surrender its own right, title, ownership, or right to publish or to grant permission for others to do so. The Museum assumes no responsibility for infraction of copyright laws, invasion of privacy, or improper or illegal use that may arise from reproduction of the image.

In the case where copyright is held by a third party, the applicant shall secure and provide to the Museum written permission from that party. The applicant shall agree to indemnify the Museum against any third-party claims of copyright infringement.

The Museum reserves the right to deny permission to reproduce an image from its collection to any applicant whose product is not acceptable to the Museum for any reason.
