Digital and/or photographic reproductions of materials are available for a fee upon request. The estimated turn-around time for orders is two weeks after receipt of the Reproduction Order Form.
Provision of photocopies, photographic prints, or digital reproductions does not constitute permission to publish, distribute, provide internet access to, or otherwise display images generated by The University of Southern Mississippi. Copyright is retained by the lawful copyright holder, and it is the responsibility of the permission seeker to contact and secure permissions from the copyright holder. Where copyright permission is not granted, materials are only for use in private study subject to the Fair Use exceptions made in U.S. Copyright Law.
As custodian of collections at the University of Southern Mississippi, Special Collections assesses digital reproduction and publication fees to offset the costs of digitization and maintenance. Publication fees apply to print, digital, internet, video and film media. Publication fees apply to textual materials whether reproduced as images or transcriptions. In most instances, the University is not the copyright holder; patrons are solely responsible for obtaining permission from the copyright holder and for paying such fees as the copyright holder requires.

Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions:
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of both published and unpublished materials. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish 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 duplication order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
