Iona College Libraries permits students, researchers, and educators to request reproductions of high-resolution, digital images from the Thanhouser Studio Archive. This collection contains photographs that are in the public domain as well as images from private collections, which may be subject to copyright law. For images that are subject to copyright law, the requester needs to obtain the appropriate permissions from the copyright holder, not Iona College, to publish the image.
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 specific conditions is that the photocopy or 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.
This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
