The most important and most courteous thing you can do any time that you access archival records shared by others is to give them credit. Please remember that all parties who have shared photographs, documents, and other ephemera, with Greene Connections have done so without compensation. These contributors and the Greene Connections volunteer team have shared their resources and their time with the expectation of fair and proper use.
Giving credit is easy! **In the Archives section of our project EVERY ITEM now incudes a pre-formatted SOURCE CITATION that you may COPY AND PASTE.**

It is the intention of the Greene Connections: Greene County, Pennsylvania Archives Project to meet the level of historical records access demonstrated by such institutions as the Library of Congress and National Archives.
Our goal is to model the digital access and free sharing examples set by these institutions.
Likewise, we adhere to their policies of user-responsibility when it comes to Copyright and Other Restrictions That Apply to Public Distribution of Images.
Please see the Library of Congress policies regarding Copyright and Other Restrictions That Apply to Public Distribution of Images and apply them to all records made available through Greene Connections.
