Heritage Microfilm and NewspaperARCHIVE.com can license images for corporate use under certain restrictions.
Please read the following guidelines carefully before contacting our Media Licensing Administrator.
What can we license?
NewspaperARCHIVE.com can license most images in our database, but not all. Some newspapers require us to withhold licensing permissions. Contact us to see whether we can license a particular image.
Do I need to use the entire page, or can I cut out what I want?
Heritage Microfilm will license full-page images only.
For newspapers published prior to 1924, we allow you to manipulate the image without further license. We will not perform the manipulation.
We cannot, for a variety of reasons, license a portion of a full page for newspapers dated past 1923. This restriction applies to advertisements, photos, text and any other subdivisions of a page. If you are interested in a particular piece of a newspaper page which must be separated from the whole, please contact the newspaper publisher directly.
Can you rescan the image at a higher resolution?
In some instances, we may be able to rescan the image at a higher resolution for an additional cost. As we occasionally do not posses the original microfilm copy of the newspaper, there are cases where we cannot rescan.
How do I license an image?
Please contact our Media Licensing Administrator, Kathy Heggebo, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
