For information about the history of Pomona College, help with research in the Archives, or assistance scheduling a visit to the Archives; please contact the Archives staff.


Pomona College Archives staff provides reproductions of unrestricted materials for research purposes. We reserve the right to refuse any request for reproduction that would violate copyright law or damage the original item(s). Permission to use or publish text or images from our collection must be obtained in writing from the Archives. Due to their fragile nature, some items within the Archives cannot be reproduced. The use of personal digital cameras to photograph materials is allowed at the discretion of the archivist. There is no self-service photocopying or scanning in the Archives. Please contact the Archives for current duplication rates.

U.S. copyright law (Title 17, United States Code) governs the reproduction of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions, known as "fair use," the law specifies that libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction for private study, scholarship, or research. If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction in excess of these purposes, that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

Researchers are liable to the creator, any heirs, owner or copyright holder, for any violation of their rights or misuses of reproductions. Researchers may not publish or reproduce any material without permission from the legal copyright owners and from the Pomona College Archives as owners of the physical property.


Permission to publish or reproduce material from the collections must be obtained from the Pomona College Archives before publication.  If the donor(s) have retained rights to a collection, the researcher must obtain the donor’s permission before publication. If permission is granted to publish material from the Archives, the Pomona College Archives must be properly cited.
