Digital reproduction is provided for researchers. Such reproductions must be done by staff only and must remain properly credited. The conditions and procedures for photograph reproductions are also in effect for digital reproductions.
Many films in the Archives use formats that are difficult to access. Not all of our films and videotapes can be viewed. Copies may be made on demand, providing that the patron covers the charge of such reproduction. Please contact the staff in advance. Professional vendors are used to prepare, handle, and create reproductions. Reproductions are for one-time, one-use, non-exclusive, single language, publication rights. Please note that by "use," Gallaudet University Archives means that each and every use of an individual image counts as a separate use. For example, requesting use of one image for a video production to be distributed in television, videocassette, and DVD formats counts as three uses of one image. All archival materials are subject to United States and International Copyright laws. It is incumbent upon the researcher to acquire the necessary permissions to reproduce images, films, or materials. All reproduced materials must be properly credited.
