Use of Digital Cameras
Non-flash, handheld digital cameras are permitted under the following conditions:
Staff permission is required.
Images are for personal study, scholarship, or research only and may not be used for commercial publication without permission from the OCHS.
Published or displayed images must be credited with Collection of the Ocean County Historical Society.
No more than 5 images may be taken from a single collection.
Preservation is paramount, so photography is not permitted on items in fragile condition or on items available in other formats (e.g. microfilm).
Materials must be handled with great care. Items must be kept flat on the table, may not be bent or pressed, and may not be removed from folders or plastic sleeves.
Standing on chairs or rearranging tables to get a better image is prohibited.
OCHS reserves the right to refuse photographic access to the research center collection.
Should a work be published, it is the researcher�s responsibility to refer to the copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) and to obtain the required permissions from copyright owners.
