Permissions and Copyright:
Collection materials including unpublished documents may be subject to laws governing copyright (Title 17, U.S. Code). Reproductions or images of our holdings made by you or us at our facility are made for private study and reference only. Permission of Moravian Archives, Winston-Salem, and any other copyright holders is required for uses exceeding this “fair use.” Researchers acknowledge that they are solely responsible for determining the copyright status of the materials they use.
No commercial uses or publication of our materials are allowed absent specific permission from the Archives. Reproduction and distribution of images on the internet is a form of publication and is, therefore, not permitted absent specific permission from the Archives.. Researchers agree to submit a permission-to-publish application to the Archives in order to notify our staff of the intent to publish any material, in any format, from our collections. Publication of any image must be source attributed to “Moravian Archives, Winston-Salem, NC.”
Permission for scholarly publication is normally granted, if a reproduction fee is paid and a complimentary copy of the publication is to be sent to the Archives.
