Permission to publish

If you want to publish images of items from Corpus Christi College's collections, you must ask permission well in advance of publication deadlines.

Bridgeman can grant permission for the use of images they hold.  Otherwise, complete and sign the permissions application form, then send it to the Librarian. Legible scanned copies are welcome.

If we approve your application, we release your permission for publication once you’ve paid the appropriate fee(s). By ‘publication', we mean publication in any media, including books, articles, theses, web sites, TV programmes, exhibition displays and so on.

How to apply for permission

First read the terms and conditions, and complete the application form in full, crossing out any irrelevant sections. Then submit a completed and signed print or electronic form to the Librarian.
