Rules for Lookup Volunteers
  • Volunteers may do unlimited lookups if and only if:
    1. The lookup volunteer is the actual author and copyright holder of the publication.
    2. The lookup volunteer is using primary source documents ... whether they are going to the courthouse or using their own xerox copies of public domain documents.
    3. The lookup volunteer has written permission from the author / copyright holder to use their publication for lookups
  • Volunteers may be able to make certain limited scope lookups in copyrighted publications under the "fair use" provisions of existing law.
  • Potential volunteers are encouraged to review the explanations of copyright protection, especially the "fair use" provisions, available elsewhere on the Web.
Rules for Lookup Requests
  • Mention the name of the book in your message. Our volunteers aren't mind-readers and they may not remember which books they volunteered for.
  • Make your requests for lookup limited in scope. "Tell me everything about the Smiths" is too broad.
Researchers should not be asked to, nor may lookup volunteers offer to, violate copyright laws in responding to requests for lookups in any and all copyrighted material.
