Using the Archives

Using the Collections

Because of the rare and fragile nature of the collections, there are special regulations to protect and preserve materials for future use. Researchers will be asked to complete an application for using archival and special collections form before using materials.

Researchers are responsible for safeguarding material made available to them. Researchers should not lean on, write on, fold, trace, or handle the papers, books or other historical materials in any way that may damage them. Researchers may use a laptop and can gain guest access to the school wireless. 

Duplication of Materials

The Marist archives managers reserve the right to refuse copying, scanning or any other form of duplication of materials due to preservation, privacy or copyright concerns, or due to time and staffing issues. All attempts to supply information will be made, but please understand that resources are limited and large copying and scanning projects may be outside of our abilities. Photographs of materials are permitted as long as they are approved by the school archives manager. In fact, researchers are encouraged to use digital cameras.

Publication

A "permission to publish" form must be completed and signed before any resource from the Marist School Archives may be used in any publication (print, web, video or audio).

Permission to Publish contracts grant permission for one time, non-exclusive use of the material. Any different or subsequent use must be applied for in writing. Materials used for exhibition, publication, or broadcast must be credited to the Marist School Archives.
 

Copyright

The Marist School Archives assumes no responsibility for infringement of copyright. Researchers assume full responsibility for any legal questions that may arise as the result of their use of materials in the collections.
