Digital Collections from the Washington Library

These digital collections are selected from among the resources of the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington, and from other staff resources at George Washington's Mount Vernon. You are invited to browse, read, learn, and enjoy. You are also encouraged to visit Mount Vernon and - should you wish to see more of these resources - make an appointment at the Library or with a particular staff member.

 

Copyright Policy

In many cases, the Washington Library/Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association (MVLA) does not hold the copyright to materials in its collections and so cannot grant or deny permission to publish them, nor can the Washington Library/MVLA assume responsibility for determining their copyright status. If the work is not in the public domain, it is the responsibility of the researcher to secure permission from the appropriate copyright holder to publish or quote from items in the library's collection.

The Washington Library/MVLA asserts no copyright over digital reproductions of works in its collections which are in the public domain. When digital reproductions of public domain works are made openly available on its Digital Collections from the Washington Library CONTENTdm site, the Washington Library/MVLA does not charge for permission to use those reproductions, and it does not grant or deny permission to publish or otherwise distribute them. This same policy does not apply to web content or other collections (digital or otherwise) that are part of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association.

Permission is not required to publish brief quotations from manuscripts in the collections of the Washington Library/MVLA and we charge no fees for such quotations. However, such quotations should be properly cited and acknowledgement given to Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association.

Copyright for materials authored or otherwise produced as official business of the Washington Library and Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association (MVLA) is retained by the MVLA.
