Instructions on how to obtain permission to reproduce images from EEBO

ProQuest LLC has copyright and other intellectual property rights in EEBO. In addition, ProQuest LLC's agreements with the owners of the materials reproduced in EEBO give us limited rights which do not include reproduction of images outside of EEBO. Accordingly, you must obtain permission to include images in books or articles from both ProQuest LLC and the owner of the material.

If you would like to include a work from Early English Books Online in an article or book, please do the following:

  • All EEBO records identify the library or other entity from whom ProQuest LLC obtained the right to microfilm and digitize the work (see "Copy from" in the full record). Please begin by contacting the library that owns the work, and request their permission to reproduce it.
  • When the library has granted the rights to you, please contact ProQuest LLC to request permission to include the image(s) in your book or article. Please send a written copy of the source library's permission and a letter outlining what material you would like to reproduce and how you are intending to use the material to:
