Restrictions on Use & Reproduction Policy - SCPL Photograph & Postcard Collection
Most of the images in the Local History Collection belong to the Santa Cruz Public Libraries. All images have been credited, and those owned by the Library are available for use by the public.
One copy of an image may be printed for personal use, giving the owner/copyright holder credit. The images are the property of the owner/copyright holder. They may not be used on the Internet, published, or used in any other way without the expressed, written permission of the owner or copyright holder.
The Library will reproduce images in a variety of formats for the minimum reproduction cost per photo of $20.00. We can make them available on CD or via email. There is also a basic use fee of $15.00 per photo for non-profit uses. In certain circumstances, this fee may be waived when the proposed use is by a student for academic purposes. There is a commercial use fee of $100.00 per image if the image will be used in for-profit circumstances. The commercial use fee may be increased when multiple uses are requested.
The Library requires that all uses credit the collection of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries and that no image may be altered without prior permission. Text accompanying the images is copyright Santa Cruz Public Libraries, California.
