* Copyright Policy for Physical Collections:

Nabb Research Center material is protected by copyright law (Title 17, U.S. Code). The researcher assumes full responsibility for conforming to the laws of libel and literary property rights which may be involved in his or her use of manuscripts or other records. With the exception of brief extracts, permission to publish any unpublished material from these manuscripts must be secured from Salisbury University Foundation, Inc. The SU Foundation does not, by granting this permission, relinquish its own right to publish the material contained in its collections or to permit other persons to publish or quote there from.

The researcher is further cautioned that neither the SU Foundation's exclusive ownership of the collections nor authorization to publish material in the collections constitutes a conveyance of those literary rights not held by Salisbury University Foundation, Inc. The person requesting duplication or rights to publish assumes full responsibility for any infringement of copyright or publication rights belonging to the author, his or her heirs, or assigns.

Copyright law also governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material (i.e. photographs). Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproductions. One of the specific conditions is that the photocopy or other 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.
