required, and the nature of use.
Images, text and data may be requested for Personal, Scholarly, or Commercial Use.
The Museum grants permission for the Personal or Scholarly Use of images, text and data for reproduction for personal, educational or academic purposes without personal or corporate gain (e.g., for study, teaching, theses, and published research).

The Museum requests that a copy of any publication that includes Peabody materials be provided to the appropriate Division(s) or to the Museum Archivist.
When permission is granted for Commercial Use, images, text and data may be reproduced for personal or corporate gain in publications, such as textbooks and field guides, and in films, television, electronic media and other commercial products. The Museum reserves the right to regulate the nature and limit the duration of Commercial Use, to set fees, and to require that copies of any publication or product that includes Peabody materials be provided to the appropriate Division(s) or the Museum Archivist.
