The University Archives of the University of Missouri-Kansas City offers broad public access to its WebPages as a contribution to education and scholarship. Some materials in these Pages may be protected by the U.S. Copyright Law (Title 17, U.S.C.) and/or by the copyright or neighboring-rights laws of other nations. More information is provided by the U.S. Copyright Office. Additionally, the reproduction of some materials may be restricted by terms of UMKC Archives gift agreements, donor restrictions, privacy and publicity rights, licensing and trademarks. For additional information on reporting possible copyright infringements.

Transmission or reproduction of items on these Pages beyond that allowed by fair use requires the written permission of the UMKC Archives and the copyright owners.

The nature of historical archival collections means that copyright or other information about restrictions may be difficult or even impossible to determine. Whenever possible, UMKC Archives will provide information about copyright owners and other restrictions in our catalog records, finding aids, illustration captions, and other texts that accompany collections. The UMKC Archives provides such information as a service to aid researchers in determining the appropriate use of an item, but that determination ultimately rests with the researcher.

The UMKC Archives may or may not own rights to material in its collections. However, we do charge permission fees for use of such material and can give or deny permission to publish or otherwise distribute material in its collections. It is the patron's obligation to determine and satisfy copyright or other use restrictions when publishing or otherwise distributing materials found in the UMKC Archives collections or on our WebPages.
