About the Digital Collections 

To complement and enhance the broader Library collections and fulfill the Library’s overall mission, the Library provides access to digital collections rich in materials relating to the history, culture, industry, geography, people, government, education, and development of Tulsa and Oklahoma. The collection currently represents resources in a variety of formats including photographs, maps, texts, postcards, and interviews.  These collections function as digital surrogates that aid in the preservation of rare and fragile resources.  

Copyright Guidelines

Materials are made available online for fair use purposes.  Some materials in these collections may be protected by the U.S. Copyright Law.

The nature of historical collections is such that copyright or other information about restrictions may be difficult or even impossible to determine. The records for individual items clearly state copyright information and restrictions on use when they are known. The Library does not grant or deny permission to others who wish to use or reproduce items found in the digital collections. As a matter of good scholarly practice, we recommend that patrons using Library-provided reproductions cite the Library and/or the appropriate web page.

Some materials may be subject to rights of privacy, publicity, and trademark. Such rights are likely to be controlled by parties other than the Tulsa City-County Library. It is the obligation of the user to determine and satisfy copyright and other restrictions when making use of materials from the Tulsa City-County Library.

The Tulsa City-County Library is always willing to discuss copyright concerns with a rights holder who finds his or her content in our collections. Copyright owners, persons with information about the materials, or individuals interested in reproductions are encouraged to contact askus@tulsalibrary.org.
