MHS Website Terms and Conditions of Use
The MHS website was created to foster the widespread distribution of information about Manitoba’s history and, as such, most of its contents may be used for non-commercial purposes without charge. We ask only that you explicitly acknowledge the Manitoba Historical Society and, where applicable, the author of the specific page being cited whenever you use information from our website.
In a few cases, such as if you will be using information from the MHS website in a publication (see below), written permission is required. Please contact the MHS Webmaster for more information.
If in doubt about the use of information from our website, please contact the MHS Webmaster.
Students and teachers in bona fide teaching facilities (e.g., schools, colleges, universities) may use information on the MHS website without restriction, and without requesting formal permission from the Manitoba Historical Society so long as: 1) the Manitoba Historical Society is explicitly acknowledged as the source of the information, 2) the information is not used in a formal publication (see below), and 3) no fee is charged for the use of MHS materials.
All requests to use information from the MHS website, in whole or in part, for commercial purposes such as print or electronic media must be directed to the MHS Webmaster. When submitting such requests, please provide: 1) a description of the information to be used from the MHS website, 2) a detailed description of the way in which the information would be used, 3) the names and addresses of person(s) and/or publishers of the media in which MHS information would appear, and 4) the proposed sale price of the media.
In most cases, permission will be granted subject to explicit acknowledgement of the Manitoba Historical Society as the source of the information, and the gratis provision of one or more copies of the media to the MHS for inclusion in our library.
Credit for Archival Photographs
Many of the photographs on the MHS website come from archival collections such as those of the Archives of Manitoba or Library and Archives Canada, and are used on our website with their permission. As such, the Manitoba Historical Society cannot give you permission to use these photographs. Instead, you must contact the original archives to request permission for your particular use. Where possible, provide the accession information given with the photograph(s) to help the archivists in finding the originals in their collections.
Reposting on Other Web Sites
Reposting of photographs, text, or data from the MHS website, in whole or in part, on other websites is strictly forbidden. Instead, we encourage you to use hyperlinks to specific pages in our website.
Most pages on the MHS website have a date indicating when the most changes have been made to them. You should cite this date when referencing the page.
