  1. All requests to reproduce photographs from the Meriam Library Special Collections Department holdings must be submitted on this application. The applicant agrees to abide by all terms, conditions, and provisions of this agreement.

    Permission for reproduction is granted only when this application is countersigned by a representative of the Meriam Library Special Collections Department. Permission for reproduction is limited to the applicant and is nontransferable.

    Permission for reproduction is granted as a one-time use, only for the expressed purpose described in this application. This permission is nonexclusive; Special Collections reserves the right to reproduce the image and to allow others to reproduce the image.

  2. In addition to the permission of the Meriam Library, Special Collections, additional permissions may be required.

    The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, USC) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, archives and libraries are authorized to furnish a photocopy or reproduction. One of these specified 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 a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
  3. All reproductions must include the name of the California State University, Chico, Meriam Library Special Collections in a caption or credit. The California State University, Chico, Meriam Library Special Collections may also require that the artist, the title of the work, and the object's catalog number appear in the caption or credit as well. Credits should appear in close proximity to the image or in a special section devoted to credits. However, reproductions distributed electronically must contain the credit or caption as part of the image.
