Permission to Publish

SEAA makes copies available for fair use purposes, and possession of such copies does not convey permission to publish. If a researcher later uses such a copy for purposes in excess of fair use, the researcher may be liable for copyright infringement. If you plan to reproduce any of our holdings, you will need to obtain permission from the Southeastern Architectural Archive. This includes all printed, digital, and web uses.

In order to support SEAA's considerable and ongoing preservation efforts, we charge a fee of $100 per image for permission to publish our materials. This fee is in addition to any requested or prior copy/scanning fees.
