The copyright status of photographs and audiovisual material is often difficult to determine, because it is affected by such things as the employment status of the photographer, the date material was created, the date material was first published, and what information accompanied the first publication. Hunter Library has not determined copyright status for many of the photographs and audiovisual materials in our collection. In many instances, the Hunter Library is acting only as an owner of the physical original.
