Get ready…new lib website coming 2nd wk of April

The library’s new BETA website is almost ready and will replace this website during the second full week of April 2017.

The new website is completely redesigned from the ground up, employs a “one-page” design, is much simpler in structure, and it works great on mobile devices. Want to try it out before the switch? You can preview the new website by clicking/tapping here. Don’t worry, we will keep updating the old website for a few months after the switch to the new website. To use the old website, you can just click/tap the “classic website” link found near the top of the new website.

Any subsequent use or change in the use constitutes reuse and must be applied for in writing to
the RHC. If the size of edition or number of editions exceeds the terms specified in this
application, the applicant/licensee/licensee shall immediately pay the difference in use fees. If

the image and allow others to reproduce the image. The RHC shall also have the right to use,
utilize, and publish any derivative image produced by the applicant/licensee, including
copyrighted works and copyrighted derivative works of the applicant/licensee.

The RHC represents and warrants that:

  • the photographs and images in its collection were gifted or granted to the RHC,
  • pursuant to the gift or grant, the RHC has a right to act with respect to such
    photograph
    or image, and,
  • as far as the RHC is aware, the rights granted by it hereunder will not infringe on
    the rights of any third party.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the RHC has not investigated the copyright status of its
holdings, and is not responsible for determining the copyright status of the photographs or
images, nor for securing copyright permission or payment for any such permission. The rights
granted by the RHC in its holdings do not include any rights that persons other than the History
Center may have in the photographs or images, including any artist’s rights of attribution or

typeface. When permission is granted to disseminate reproductions electronically, the RHC
reserves the right to require an electronic watermark or other identifying code within the

requirement.

liquidated damages and not as a penalty, in view of the difficulty of assessing actual damages
for this breach.

applicant/licensee

.
In the event that the applicant/licensee engages in unauthorized reproduction of photographs or
other materials, the applicant/licensee agrees to pay the RHC a sum equal to three times the
normal commercial fee, not as a penalty but as liquidated damages, due to the difficulty in
assessing actual damages incurred.

The RHC may (by written request), in the event of unauthorized reproduction(s), require
immediate surrender of all materials containing such unauthorized reproduction(s).

The RHC reserves the right to refuse reproduction of its holdings if it is believed that
fulfillment of that order would be violating copyright or other law, or if it deems it advisable.
The RHC further reserves the right to impose such conditions as it may deem advisable.

Unless approved in advance by the RHC, each image MUST be reproduced unaltered and in its
entirety; the image must not be cropped, overprinted, printed on color stock, or bleed off the
page.

If so requested, a proof must be approved by the RHC staff before any reproduction of an image
in color.

The RHC reserves the right to examine proofs and captions for accuracy and sensitivity before
publication with the right to revise if necessary. The RHC reserves the right to refuse any
request and to impose such conditions as it may deem advisable in the best interests of the
RHC.

not exceed a resolution of 72 dpi. Images may not be scanned at a resolution greater than 300
dpi. Scanned files must be destroyed once the final product has been produced.

The applicant/licensee covenants, represents, and warrants of the Product will not contain any
feature which would permit users to distort or mutilate the image, nor will the Product be
intentionally designed or prepared so as to be compatible with any computer program which is
designed to manipulate graphic images.

electronic materials accompanying the Product, or in any advertisement for the Product other
than as expressly permitted below:

agrees that any Promotional Use will be made solely in a manner which indicates that the image
is part of the content of the Product, and the RHC’s name will not be used as aesthetic or design
elements in such Promotion Use.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, applicant/licensee shall not use the image or
the RHC’s name in any manner which creates any association between the image and/or the
RHC and applicant/licensee to such an extent that any goodwill towards the Product or
applicant/licensee arises in the image and/or RHC’s name, and applicant/licensee agrees that it
will not have right, under any circumstances whatsoever, to claim, and will not claim, that such
goodwill has arisen or the applicant/licensee is entitled to the benefits, if any, thereof.
