- Using the Library
As an inducement to and partial consideration for Special Collections, University of Mississippi Libraries (“Special Collections”) providing certain photographs, copies, or reproductions (“materials”), the undersigned (“applicant”) agrees and consents to the following terms and conditions:
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. 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 to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
“Non-Print Materials” (a musical work, a pictorial, graphic or sculptural work, or a motion picture or other audiovisual work other than an audiovisual work dealing with news):
These materials are being provided to you upon your representation that you will use them for only private study, scholarship or research that is “fair use” under the United States copyright laws. It is your responsibility under this agreement only to make “fair use” of these materials. If you use these materials for any other purposes in excess of fair use, you may be liable for such use.
Special Collections retains all rights it has in materials including, without limitation, its right to publish these materials or to grant permission to others to do so. These materials may not be deposited in or donated to other repositories or libraries.
Applicant agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Special Collections, the University of Mississippi, and all its agents and employees against all claims, damages, actions, judgments, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from any claims or allegations of copyright infringement, invasion of privacy and/or rights to publicity and any claims arising from failure to obtain adequate permissions from the subjects in the material(s).
