Ethical Use of Collections

Given the importance of the material digitised as part of the various EAP grants, and the fact that our digitised collections include materials that are significant to particular communities and groups, we ask that any use of the collections is undertaken with appropriate care. Irrespective of its copyright status, items and/or collections should not be altered or used in ways that might be derogatory to the individuals or communities concerned.

For more information about the British Library's Ethical terms of use please go to the main BL website.

In making the material available online the we act in good faith based on the information we have been supplied. However, despite these safeguards, we recognise that from time to time EAP material published online may be in breach of copyright laws or contain sensitive personal data. If this is the case, please visit the British Library's Notice and Takedown Policy.
