Guidelines for use of publicity images

In the event of violation of the following conditions, the sponsors of the exhibit reserve the right to terminate a participating library’s program involvement.

  • Host libraries are authorized to use specific images in publicity for programs. Libraries may authorize newspapers and other media to use the images for program publicity only. If you have a question about use of an image, please contact Jennifer Dominiak.
  • The use of these images is restricted to noncommercial or educational activities and promotion of the exhibit at the specified library venues. Commercial use of any image for profit in another publication, edition, format, or language is prohibited. Images may not be used for publicity for programs involving fundraising. (There are many related images in the public domain for such purposes.)
  • Libraries may not reformat, redesign or otherwise alter the images, nor re-use the images in other commercial products, nor allow others to use them (except for media outlets or program partners). Libraries may print color images in black-and-white.
  • All images must be accompanied by the ownership credits provided with the image. The use of accompanying descriptive captions is encouraged if space is available.
  • Two copies of materials using any of these images must be provided to the Public Programs Office with the library’s final report.
  • Libraries are liable for damages, claims, suits or other legal proceedings arising from or attributed to violation of third party rights resulting from any unauthorized creation, use, display, or modification of advertising or publicity materials relating to the library programs.
