Permission to use materials does not convey permission to publish them. OLC can grant permission to publish only those materials for which it holds intellectual property rights. In giving such permission, OLC does not surrender its own right to publish the same materials nor its right to permit others to do so. Publication of images from the collections requires a user contract.  If you have questions about access, permissions, copyright, or citation, contact the staff at or or (605) 455-6065 or (605) 455-6063.

It is a researcher’s responsibility to determine copyright status and obtain all needed permissions.

It is not necessary to seek the Library’s permission as the owner of the physical work to publish or otherwise use public domain materials that the Library has made available either online or directly to you from our collections.

For more information, see:


Citations to records and papers held by the OLC Archives should indicate clearly the source of materials used. Proper citation helps both the researcher who may wish to see records a second time and the Archives staff who may be asked to locate complete texts of cited documents.

We have no preferred citation style or format, but ask that you include the following elements in any citation:

  • A clear identification of the item you are citing
  • The name of the collection from which the item comes
  • Collection or accession number, box number and folder number
  • Our name: Archives and Special Collections, Martin Library, University of Minnesota Duluth

When you include our materials in your publication, we would love to receive a copy. We are interested in your work and would like to share it with other researchers who might be looking at similar material.
