Researchers may download collection images free of charge from the library's website for personal use. Library users may also use their own equipment to photograph collection materials for personal use and do their own photocopying in certain parts of the library.

Individuals who wish to include a copy—in any format—of an item from the Winterthur Library in a publication, web page or other electronic medium, film, exhibit, etc., must first obtain permission.

Images of items from Winterthur Library collections cannot be reproduced for commercial advertising purposes.

Material under copyright cannot be duplicated without the written permission of the copyright owner. Full responsibility for any infringement of copyright is assumed by the researcher.

Rights to reproduce are granted for one-time, one-use, non-exclusive, worldwide, English language only. Any additional formats or languages, further revisions, editions, or re-printings require the submission of a new request. Permission for any future media not yet invented or in perpetuity rights will not be granted.

A Winterthur permission letter will be generated when responding to a photo order. No outside agreements or permission forms will be signed.

Requests for permission to quote from Winterthur’s manuscript collection or archives must be made in writing. Each request must include a citation of the material used, passages quoted, and a description of publication plans.
