Images for Publication
For researchers interested in publishing an image of our museum or of an object in our collection, please fill out our image request form. Permission to publish an image may or may not be granted depending on the type of use of the image. Images are typically provided for use in scholarly publications or for research purposes rather than commercial use. Due to the small size of our staff, we rarely can meet tight deadlines, so please submit requests as early as possible.
If image use is approved and the museum already holds a high quality image of the object requested, the image is typically provided for free. In cases where no image exists for the object, an image can be provided upon payment of a $25 fee to the museum, which partially covers a professional photographer’s fee.
All images must be used in accordance with guidelines provided by the museum staff. If an image is to be re-used in additional publications, that re-use must be requested through the museum. The museum asks the researcher to send the museum a physical and/or digital copy of the final publication that includes the provided image(s).
