Guidelines for Use of Exhibit Publicity Images

“Visions of the Universe: Four Centuries of Discovery” Site Support Notebook

In the event of violation of the following conditions, the sponsors of the “Visions of the Universe” touring exhibition reserve the right to terminate a participating library’s use of the exhibition.

  • Most of the images available from the Space Telescope Science Institute for the traveling exhibit are in the public domain. “Visions of the Universe” tour libraries may use these images in publicity for the exhibit. LIBRARIES MUST INCLUDE CREDITS FOR THE IMAGES wherever they are used. Libraries may authorize newspapers and other media to use the images for exhibit publicity only. If libraries use other images, they are responsible for obtaining permissions if they are necessary.

  • These images are to be used for noncommercial or educational activities and promotion of the “Visions of the Universe” exhibition at the specified library venues hosting the exhibit. Commercial use of any image for profit in another publication, edition, format, or language is prohibited.

  • Two copies of materials using any of these images must be provided to the Public Programs Office with the library’s final report.

  • Libraries should not reformat, redesign or otherwise alter the screens on which the images appear. 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.

  • 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 exhibit.
