to the Collection
The Special Collections and Archives Section of the
Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) Library and the Department of
Correctional and Juvenile Justice Studies at EKU are extremely interested
in adding to our growing Correctional Photo Archives (CPA). This
collection is being preserved permanently under optimal archival
storage and security conditions, and, of course, is eminently accessible
through the CPA web site. Aside from the collection s research potential,
it is a great source for instructional use in the classroom.
If you possess or know of an individual or organization
which might have interesting photographs or other visual images
that capture American correctional history please send inquires
to Special Collections and Archives
or the Department of Correctional
and Juvenile Justice Studies.
The CPA provides several options for the donation
(The links below are to .pdf forms which require
Adobe Acrobat Reader to view. If you do not have the reader click
here for a free download.)
- An outright donation to Eastern Kentucky
University including copyright and literary rights.
- An agreement of deposit whereby the depositor
still maintains copyright and literary rights.
Before receiving any donation it is urged that the
donor attempt as best possible to secure complete copyright control
of any image(s). Special Collections and Archives will not assume
responsibility for copyright infringement on any item which has
been donated to the CPA.
In addition to accepting donations of images and
related materials which document the history of corrections to the
CPA, Special Collections and Archives has established a separate
account for financial contributions to the Archives.
We strongly encourage your donations which are vital
to recognizing the important role corrections and justice have played
in American history.
