* Reproduction Policy - July 2007

The Nabb Center does not perform pro bono reproductions of any kind. All reproductions performed at the request of patrons, organizations or other entities are carried out according to existing policies and are based on the availability of staff and will incur fees.

Then Nabb Center provides two types of reproduction services: self service and staff produced. In all cases, approval must be received from a staff member before photocopying.

Before making or requesting copies, please be advised:

  • Written guarantees of appropriate copyright notice and the proper crediting of the Nabb Center must be included in any publication. An example of how to cite credit is:

    The Harold Bennett Rare Book Collection, Special Collections. Courtesy of the Edward H. Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture, Salisbury University, Salisbury Maryland.

  • Please provide the Nabb Center with a courtesy copy of any publication in which our copies were used.
  • Copies will be denied should it violate copyright laws or the guidelines stated within the Deed of Gift.
  • Under no circumstances are photographs which we have reproduced for you to be circulated to other parties. This is a copyright violation. If this is found to have happened, you will be restricted from obtaining material in the future.
  • A $0.25 charge per photocopy is levied for patrons using the photocopy machine.
  • Parts of the collection are completely prohibited from copying.
  • The Nabb Center does not reproduce VHS, other visual recordings or digital copies of textual archive material.
  • The Nabb Center reserves the right to restrict the number of copies allowed.
  • Analog photography and personal scanning is prohibited.
  • Photographs are never photocopied because of the damage done by the process. If you require a copy of a photograph, please ask about scanning services.
  • Due to physical restraints patrons may not copy oversized items. Fees are levied in reproducing oversized items to recover the extra costs and resources involved.
  • Complete volumes and entire manuscript collections may not be photocopied or photographed. If you need something of this type, please ask about microfilming.
  • The light and heat generated during photocopying contribute to the deterioration of materials. Help us preserve materials by keeping your requests to a minimum and selecting only those items truly needed.
  • Prior to publishing or reproducing any materials contained within the Nabb's collection, written permission must be obtained from the copyright or literary rights owner. It is the responsibility of the user to obtain this permission.

We ask all patrons who wish to photocopy manuscript or other unnumbered pages to never remove an individual page from its folder. Carry the closed folder to the photocopy machine, copy one page at a time and replace the copied page as soon as the copy is made.

Failure to follow these proper procedures may result in being denied future access to materials.

* Procedures for Requesting Copies

The Nabb Center welcomes the use of its collection to all interested parties. While other fees may apply, Publication Usage Fees are not applied to non-profit organizations. Please supply verification of your organization's non-profit status when submitting a request.
