In most cases SCRC does not own copyright of the materials in its repositories. Furthermore, you accept that SCRC reserves the right to deny reproduction requests or limit the number of copies made, due to the sensitivity of rare items and because of copyright regulations, privacy rights, donor-imposed regulations, or other rights-related issues. When displaying or publishing a reproduction provided by SCRC (for which SIU does not own copyright), please include the credit line: “Courtesy of Special Collections Research Center, Southern Illinois University Carbondale.”
