For researchers hoping to copy and publish images from the U.S. News & World Report Collection, information about how to assess rights to images in the collection and how to obtain both reference and quality copies is provided below.
Researchers can copy contact sheets in the reading room, using the reading room copying machine or photographing with a hand-held camera (see the Prints & Photographs Division's policy on hand-held camera copying). In addition to the visual information inherent in the contact sheets, contact sheet copies can be used for selecting and communicating about individual images for which quality digital scans are desired.
Researchers can purchase quality scans of individual negative frames through Library of Congress Duplication Services. In placing an order, researchers should cite the U.S. News & World Report Collection job and frame number number (e.g., LC-U9-795C, frame 35), preferably with a copy of the contact sheet with the desired frame highlighted, to ensure accurate fulfillment of the request.
Researchers can download digital files.
