As part of its public service mission, The New York Public Library reproduces items from its collections in a range of formats including various size b/w and color prints, digital scans on CD, 35mm slides, and color transparencies for personal or research use only. You must apply to the Library for permission to use reproductions for all other uses including, but not limited to, commercial or scholarly publication, exhibition, commercial or public television broadcast, home video/DVD, non-broadcast documentaries, online/web site and promotion, which are all subject to a use fee. Please note that in most cases the Library only holds the physical rights to the images in its collections and it is up to the patron to clear copyright.
