The Visual Resources Library is committed to supporting the curriculum and research needs of the Department of Art History. As part of that commitment, the Visual Resources Library makes images available for use in teaching and learning.
The Visual Resources Library has two flatbed scanners. These scanners are used to scan high-resolution items for the digital collection. Faculty may request items to be scanned for instructional purposes by using the scanning request form. In those cases where there is no indication that there are separate copyright owners for plates or figures, apart from the copyright owner of the text of a book, not more than 10% of the images per copyright owner will be produced as digital images. The Visual Resources Library reserves the right to decline orders for scanning copyrighted material if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law. The Visual Resources Library does not transfer any reproduction rights and assumes no responsibility for patron violation of copyright.
The scanners in the Visual Resources Library are used for the express purpose of adding items to the digital collection and supporting the curriculum needs of the department.
Art history students may make arrangements to use a scanner to scan images for class presentations by contacting the curator.
