Information for Researchers

Historic Hudson Valley's Library is a non-browsing facility open to the public by appointment only.

To schedule a visit, please contact the Library at 914.366.6901 or librarian@hudsonvalley.org at least a week in advance.  We also welcome any reference questions by phone or email.

All Library users must complete and sign a researcher registration form and follow established procedures for the preservation and security of materials.

Reproduction and Publication

Photocopies of materials may be made, for a fee, in accordance with the rules and regulations of United States copyright law.  Photocopies will be made by Library staff and mailed to the researcher at Historic Hudson Valley’s earliest convenience after receipt of payment.

Not all materials may be photocopied, for reasons such as preservation, age, or rarity.  Requests for photoduplication will be considered when such duplication can, in the staff's judgment, be performed without injury to the document.
Permission to examine the manuscripts is not an authorization to publish, display, reproduce, perform, distribute, or prepare derivative works of them. To the extent that it may do so legally, Historic Hudson Valley will ordinarily grant publication rights for scholarly and other purposes permissible under United States copyright law upon written request by qualified applicants.
