The nature of historical archival collections means that copyright or other information about restrictions may be difficult to determine. Whenever possible, the Milwaukee County Historical Society provides information about copyright owners and other restrictions in the catalog records, finding aids, and donor records. The Society provides such information as a service to aid patrons in determining the appropriate use of an item, but the legal determination ultimately rests with the patron.
