Before taking any images of any printed matter located at the Botany Libraries, permission needs to be requested by filling out the form Permission to Photograph Materials. Only after the permission is granted may images be taken.

Permission to Publish Materials

If any of the images acquired from the Botany Libraries are considered to be reproduced in a scholarly publication, the Permission to Publish Images form needs to be completed and mailed to:

Botany Libraries

Please note that the use of images acquired from the Botany Libraries for display on websites, DVD, CD-Rom, Television Broadcast, or other Electronic Media require the Multi-Media Licensing Agreement which can be requested by emailing
