  2. Indicate any cropping or modifications
    If you used a cropped version of the image, indicate that it is partial image. If you make any other modifications, please indicate that as well.
  3. Get permission from third-party copyright holders
    Even images that are marked as "Public Domain" may be copyrighted by a third party or subject to other rights. It is your sole responsibility as the user of these images to secure permission from any copyright holders. The museum will bear no responsibility for any violations resulting from image user actions.

2.Request non–public domain images and high-resolution images

Those who wish to use the types of images listed in (1)–(3) below must fill out a High-resolution Image Usage Request after reviewing the Guidelines on the Use of High-resolution Images and send it via email to our image usage representative (contact information provided below).

Once you have filed your request, we will discuss with you the manner in which the image(s) will be sent. This process takes about two weeks. You will then be sent the requested images. There is no usage fee for the images, but please note that depending on the restrictions governing their use, we may not be able to grant your request.

3.Request regarding deliverables

We ask that you provide the museum with a copy of any deliverables (e.g. printed materials) created using images from our collection so that we can keep them for reference. Please send them to our image usage representative (contact information provided below).
