Reproductions

The Cornwall Historical Society offers researchers three options for obtaining reproductions of our holdings:

Photocopies

Low resolution (reference quality) files

High resolution (publication quality) files

The Cornwall Historical Society will not reproduce materials in violation of copyright or donor restrictions. The CHS also reserves the right to refuse requests for copies of items too fragile to be safely reproduced, and will not create low resolution files of original materials that are available in other formats.

Statement on Copyright

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.
