Re-using content

You may be able to re-use content, but it depends on the item. Content in Fusion comes from a variety of sources, so you will need to check the rights information for each item:

Common rights explained

 Public Domain Mark
This work is free of known copyright restrictions.

If the item is in the Public Domain (meaning the copyright has expired or been waived), you are free to download, copy and use the material.  You don’t have to provide attribution, but it’s a good idea to provide a link to the source so that others can find it too.

There may be times when the majority of the content is in the Public Domain, but some of the content is still under copyright – such as an image or article included in the work.  If that’s the case, you’ll see an acknowledgement on the page:

Look out for acknowledgements so you know if permission is needed to copy or reproduce the material.

 Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial No-Derivatives licence
Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial No-Derivatives licence.

This licence allows you to copy, use and distribute the material without changes or modifications, provided use is for non-commercial purposes and you attribute the copyright owner, source and indicate that the work is licensed (CC BY-NC-ND).

All rights reserved

Some items have special permission to be viewed only, as they are still in copyright. When that happens, you’ll see “All Rights Reserved” and the copyright owner’s information.  If you want to re-use that material, you will need permission from the copyright owner.

Obtaining high quality files

To optimise accessibility, content files in Fusion are generally of medium quality. Higher quality versions of files are usually available in DRO, linked from the Fusion item records. In addition, high quality TIFF files of individual pages may be available. Contact the Library if you wish to access these files.
