Cornell Library's perspective

Please note that the Cornell University Library does not require its users to seek permission to publish public domain items digitized from its collections. This does not apply to images Cornell licenses from other institutions or corporations. Consult with other digital image collection owners, such as the H. F. Johnson Museum, about their policies.
