Rules for the Use of Manuscript and Archival Material

  • I understand that permission to examine a manuscript does not include permission to publish the contents of the manuscript or any excerpt therefrom at any time.

  • I understand further that McMaster University Library makes no representation that it is the owner of the common law copyright or literary property in its unpublished manuscripts and that I am responsible for obtaining permission to publish from the owner of the copyright (the author or his transferees, heirs, legatees, or literary executors.)

  • I will adhere to the rules for use in the Reading Room of the Division concerning proper identification and the care and handling of materials.
