Collection Susan B. Anthony Papers

Rights and Access

The Library of Congress believes that virtually all of the papers in its Susan B. Anthony collection are in the public domain or have no known copyright restrictions, and are therefore free to use and reuse. For example, Susan B. Anthony's personal papers are in the public domain.

The Library presents additional materials for educational and research purposes in accordance with fair use under United States copyright law. Researchers should watch for modern documents (for example, published in the United States less than 95 years ago, or unpublished and the author died less than 70 years ago) that may be copyrighted.

Rights assessment and securing any necessary permissions are your responsibility.
