Collections Use: Rights and Permissions

General Collections

Princeton University and the Library comply with United States copyright law. The Library encourages all campus researchers to have basic understanding of U.S. copyright law and an awareness of their rights and responsibilities regarding reproduction and use of copyrighted material.  In most cases, Princeton University owns only the physical item, not the literary property or copyright, and therefore assumes no responsibility for violations of such rights or for any other legal issues resulting from the use or publication of the items.
