Permission and use fees

The Kansas State Historical Society charges non-profit and commercial users fees in order to support the maintenance of our collections.

The Historical Society has not determined copyright status for many of the materials in our collection.

However, materials appearing on Kansas Memory, our digital collections repository, have been reviewed to determine that dissemination via the Internet will not violate the rights of known copyright holders or state or federal privacy laws. For materials not on Kansas Memory, the Historical Society is not responsible for determining the copyright status of the images(s) or securing copyright permission.

Users of materials are required to complete and return a permission form:

Use fees will be determined from the information on the permission form. Please read, supply the requested information, sign, and return this form to the State Archives, 6425 SW 6th Avenue, Topeka KS 66615-1099.
