FAQs: Copyright and re-use

FAQ: Can I get permission to use a newspaper article?

Neither Trove nor the National Library of Australia can grant special permission to use copyrighted items, only the copyright holder can do this. Before you reproduce any newspaper articles you will need to confirm whether or not they are out of copyright.

If the article is out of copyright it is free to use, however proper attribution and citation should be applied when using all newspaper content.
