If an image from the Steele Collection is needed for publication or exhibition use, it may be necessary to first obtain permission from the copyright owner, who is normally the author or creator. For more information, you can follow up with the University of Alberta Copyright Office.
Libraries have traditionally charged fees for the use of images of library materials, but U of A Libraries have waived usage fees on the condition that proper copyright permissions have been obtained (if applicable) and provided that the correct acknowledgement is displayed. For images of materials in the Steele Collection use: “Image courtesy of Bruce Peel Special Collections, University of Alberta.”
A selection of materials in the Steele Collection has been digitized—see EXPLORE THE COLLECTION—and these images may be used provided that proper copyright permissions have been obtained (if applicable). If the website images are not sufficient and high resolution scans are required, request them from Sonya Betz. Items in the collection that have not been digitized can be photographed or scanned on the condition that reproduction will not damage rare materials.
