The University of Tulsa supports freedom of research and the unrestricted dissemination of the results of research. The policies governing the use of Special Collections materials are intended to be as liberal as possible. Restrictions on the use of materials derive primarily from conditions imposed by authors or donors, intellectual property laws, and the physical condition and preservation of the materials themselves.
The policies and regulations are divided up into the following categories:
- Access to the Collections
- Reading Room Guidelines
- Duplication of materials from the Collections
- Publication of materials from the Collections
- Collection Development Policy
- Gift Policy
