Document Reproductions

Requests for digital reproductions of select documents from the Archives may be done online. There is a maximum of 25 pages per reproduction request. Materials may only be reproduced by a staff member, and document reproduction fees apply. Reproductions may be done in PDF or JPG format and will be sent via electronic delivery.

Reproductions of archival records are made solely for private study for the individual researcher requesting them. Copyright is not conveyed with the reproductions. The researcher must not quote from, publish, reproduce, or display any material from the copy, in whole or in part, without written permission from the copyright holder and from the NYU Medical Archives. Responsibility for determining the rights holders and adhering to copyright law rests with the researcher. Transfer of copies to another library or other entity is prohibited. Posting copies online without permission from the Archives is not permitted.

The Archives reserve the right to refuse a reproduction request, if in its judgment, fulfillment of the request would damage the item in any way, if it will violate U.S. Copyright Law, or if copying is restricted by donor deposit agreement.

Copyright Statement

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 for "fair use". One of these 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.
