Terms of Access and Use
Restrictions on access:
The Collection is open to research according to the regulations of the Sophia Smith Collection without any additional restrictions.
Note: This collection has not been fully processed and may be somewhat difficult to use. This means the container list may not have very detailed descriptions, or be completely accurate. Some items may also be fragile or deteriorated, requiring further preservation treatment. Handle fragile or deteriorated items with extreme care. Locations of materials are subject to change when the collection is fully processed at a later date; therefore, when citing materials do not depend solely on box and folder numbers as they may change.

Published material may be protected by copyright. Copyright for unpublished material, such as student papers, may be owned by the authors. Permission must be obtained to publish reproductions or quotations beyond "fair use." It is the responsibility of the researcher to identify and satisfy the holders of all copyrights. Permission must also be obtained from the Sophia Smith Collection as owners of the physical property.
