Copyright & Usage

Copyright for material on this website belongs to many different people and organisations. The developers have made every effort to acknowledge all items appropriately.

If you want to refer to an item from our website, for example in an assignment or research paper, we encourage you to include a link to the individual page for that item on our website using the citation method that your institution or publisher requires. Each item on the website has its own individual page. It’s usually better to link to individual item pages, rather than linking to pages with lots of items on them.

If an item is from an external website, you can link directly to the original source. We provide details of our sources so you can trace items that are hosted on other websites.

If you want to download and use an item from our website, you are responsible to check whether the item is still in copyright and get any necessary permissions from the copyright holder.
