The City of Vancouver Archives is committed to making the materials in its holdings available to as large a community as possible, without any unwarranted restrictions as to their use.
Restrictions can go beyond just copyright. In order to facilitate the use of its materials, the Archives will reproduce copies of its holdings for patrons and in some cases allow patrons to make their own copies of materials.
The reproduction of materials is done consistent with the following principles.
1.0 Self-copying by Archives patrons
This section applies to all copying of Archives' materials performed by patrons.
2.0 Copying by the Archives
This section applies to copying performed by the Archives on behalf of an Archives patron. Except for self-copying by use of cameras or microform printers (as described in 1.1b and 1.2 above), Archives patrons are not permitted to make mechanical reproductions of materials obtained by a document request form and all such copying must be performed by Archives staff.
This section applies to copying whether performed by the Archives' patron or by the Archives on behalf of the patron.
