  • Researchers will not use outside lights or strong flashes to photograph materials.
  • Researchers will not disturb other patrons, place themselves in jeopardy, or take any extraordinary measures, such as standing on furniture, to get the "best" shot.
  • Researchers will not place collection documents in peril or take extraordinary means to stabilize documents in an effort to get the "best" shot.
