Camera Use Policy & Photocopies:
Patrons are permitted limited use of digital still cameras. Physical condition, copyright issues, donor restrictions, curatorial decisions and other factors may limit or prohibit photography. Photographs are for personal study purposes only and cannot be reproduced; transferred to any other individual, institution, or collection; exhibited; performed; broadcast; published; posted on the Internet; or used commercially.
The Archives Research Center reserves the right to prohibit or limit photocopying of fragile, restricted, and copyrighted materials. Due to copyright policy, no more than 20 percent of a collection can be copied, and is at the discretion of the archivist. Of the materials in the Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Collection, only 20 percent of a document may be copied. In accordance with this policy, documents may only be photocopied if they are more than six pages in length. Photocopies of materials in the Archives Research Center may be requested for a fee and are prepared by the staff. Depending on the staffing level and size of the copy request, photocopies may not be available on the same day of the request.
