LMS Archives Online: Electronic Material Request Form

I hereby request permission for electronic access to the Lower Mississippi Survey Archives for the following purpose:


I understand that permission to examine manuscript material (including photographs, maps, and other archival materials), if granted, does not include permission to publish the contents of the manuscript material, or any excerpt therefrom at any time, and that separate, written permission to publish must be made to the officer in charge of the Peabody Museum Archives, specifying the manuscript or excerpt. Publication is defined as any quotation used in a book, article, or doctoral dissertation. I agree to abide by the officer's decision.

I understand further that the Peabody Museum makes no representation that it is the owner of the copyright in its unpublished manuscripts (the official records of Harvard University excepted), and that I am responsible for obtaining permission to publish from the owner of the copyright (the author or his/her transferees, heirs, legatees, or literary executors).

I agree that any reproduction made of the material in the LMS archives is solely for my convenience in examining this material. I agree further that the reproduction will not itself be reproduced, and that it will not be examined or transferred to any other person or institution, without prior permission of the Archivist of the Peabody Museum.

I agree not to give anyone else access to the LMS Archives by sharing my user name and password.

In consideration of my being granted permission to examine the listed manuscript material(s) on the terms set forth above, I agree to indemnify and hold harmless Harvard University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, their officers, employees, and agents from and against all claims resulting from my use of the manuscript made by any person asserting that (s)he is the owner of the copyright.

I understand that the Archivist of the Peabody Museum reserves the right to terminate my access to the LMS Archives web site at any time.
