Southern Oregon Digital Archives Conditions of Use

Southern Oregon Digital Archives provides a corpus of materials for public use, research, and viewing for education and scholarship. Although these materials are publicly accessible, they are not necessarily in the public domain. For materials not in the public domain, Hannon Library has sought permission from authors, publishers, and copyright owners to scan and mount these materials for research and educational purposes only.

The nature of collection, which includes many materials in the public domain means that copyright or other information about restrictions may be difficult to determine. Whenever possible, the SODA Project provides information about copyright owners and permissions in the metadata as a service to aid patrons in determining the appropriate use of an item, but that determination ultimately rests with the patron.

It is the patron's obligation to determine and satisfy copyright or other use restrictions when copying or distributing materials found in the Southern Oregon Digital Archives. When possible, we have provided specific information about copyright in the metadata to aid patrons in determining the appropriate use of an item.

For materials protected by the U.S. Copyright Law (Title 17, U.S.C.), transmission or reproduction beyond that allowed by fair use requires the written permission of the copyright and/or property owners.

We wish to acknowledge partner libraries, museums, archives, agencies, organizations, tribes, and individuals who have contributed texts and images to these collections. Credits are provided in the metadata of documents and images. Hannon Library is eager to hear from any copyright owners who are not properly identified so that appropriate information may be provided in the future.

By their use of these materials, users agree to the following conditions of use:

United States Copyright Law

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.
