Processing fees offset the cost of scanning and/or copying digital images from the Library’s photograph collections. Payment of all fees must be made when submitting an order. If an order is arranged via e-mail or telephone, payment must arrive prior to the delivery of the digital image. Digital versions of images are generally provided at low resolution (less than 300 dpi), in .TIF or .JPG format. If a higher-resolution image is requested, other fees may apply. Digital photographs will be delivered to customers by burning images to a CD-ROM, electronically through the Internet, or saved to a memory device provided by the customer. Scanning images with a customer’s own equipment, or faxing images, is not permitted.
Use fees are charged for commercial use of Wichita Public Library images. No use fees are charged for non-commercial use in print publications issued by nonprofit societies or agencies, government departments or agencies, or for scholarly use (publication in scholarly works with circulation less than 10,000 copies or university press publications with print runs of 5,000 copies or less). Additionally, no use fees are charged for the use of photographs in newspaper articles, newscasts or non-commercial documentaries. Credit must be given to the Edward and Elizabeth Burns Historical Research Pavilion, Wichita Public Library, whether or not a use fee is charged. Publication use fees are assessed in addition to processing fees outlined above.
