About re-using content from the Pacific University Archives

The Pacific University Archives & Special Collections is committed to providing broad access to its collections for teaching, learning, and research. Pacific University owns the copyright to some, but not all, of the materials housed in its archives and other collections. Copyright for materials authored or otherwise produced as official business of Pacific University is retained by the university and requires its permission for publication. For other materials, such as artwork, personal papers of individuals or historic photographs, Pacific University often does not own the copyright. Accordingly, you are solely responsible for determining the copyright status of any materials you may wish to use, to investigate the owner of the copyright, and to obtain permission for your intended use. In all cases, you must cite the Pacific University as the source, and, if a particular material is copyrighted, you must cite all copyright information and comply with all other terms or restrictions that may be applicable to that material.

Transmission or reproduction of materials protected by U.S. Copyright Law (Title 17, U.S.C.) beyond that allowed by fair use requires the written permission of the copyright owners. Works not in the public domain cannot be commercially exploited without permission of the copyright owners. Responsibility for any use rests exclusively with the user.

About harmful or insensitive content on this site

The images, documents, oral histories, and other content on this site are digitized versions of original historic sources. The sources often reflect the personal viewpoints, recollections and opinions of the individuals who created them. They  may contain offensive language, ideas or negative stereotypes reflecting the culture or language of a person, period or place. Such content is often important to document as evidence of past injustices. These narratives should in no way be interpreted as the official history of Pacific University, nor do they necessarily represent the views of the institution.
