Digital Collections Copyright Statement

University Archives holds materials that chronicle the history of Western University of Health Sciences and osteopathic medicine in California.  We make some of these materials available online through our digital collection management system CONTENTdm in order to provide wider access to the materials and to assist researchers.

In each collection, we have included standardized “rights statements” that are used by many archival repositories to provide guidance on the current copyright status of the materials. University Archives has made an effort to choose the appropriate statement for each collection. However, it is still up to the researcher to determine the proper status of the items.

If you believe we have incorrectly identified the copyright status of any materials, please contact University Archives at Any other questions about our collections should also be directed to University Archives.  In certain cases, we have limited access to digital materials for on-campus viewing only.   

If you use any items from our collections, please cite Western University of Health Sciences University Archives as the source of the material.
