Special Bulletin #10: Guide to Rights and Reproduction at American Art Museums
Museum procedures for the rights and reproduction of works in their collections are diverse. Now, the advent of digitization and its imaging potential via the information super-highway has added another element to the ongoing discussion of these issues. This project began in February 1990 when approximately 230 art museums and galleries, as well as other institutions with significant art holdings, were sent questionnaires requesting information about their rights and reproduction policies. The information in each entry is intended to offer only a general guideline. Such categories as contact title, department, reproduction conditions, and credit line should remain relatively constant.
