The Department of Information and Public Relations holds materials in a wide variety of formats including:
- Audio recordings
- Video recordings
- Electronic recordings
- Photographs and
- Graphic works
The Department of Information and Public Relations does not add to its holding through purchase. We may accept offers to submit images, materials and/or documents when said items are closely related to Government materials already in our possession.
As a policy, the Department of Information and Public Relations does not sign documents stating that particular images are not copyrighted, because Government records are public domain. For other materials, it is the user’s responsibility to determine copyright.
The vast majority of the digital images online are public domain. Therefore, no written permission is required to use them. We would appreciate your crediting the Department of Information and Public Relations as the original source.
For the few images that may be copyrighted, permission is required to use the images.
There are a few images obtained from other organizations on our site and are always credited. Permission to use these photographs should be obtained directly from those organizations.
