The Glendale Community College Archives are available for research by GCC students, faculty, staff, and the public. Archival materials are to be used in the Library and do not leave the premises. GCC Library staff retrieve archival materials for researchers to use in the Library.
The GCC Archives collections remain largely un-cataloged, however a list of the GCC Archives Collections List is available for access below. Inventory lists for some of the collections may be available.
If you have a question or research inquiry and would like to make an appointment, please contact a librarian at email@example.com or Reference Desk Staff (818) 240-1000 ext. 5577.
All users will be required to complete a standard registration form recording user's name, address, and listing of the records requested. Please review the Security and Use Procedures form below.
Transmission or reproduction of items beyond that allowed by fair use requires the written permission from GCC Archives. All users must submit a request for permission to quote or publish from manuscripts, or for one-time permission to reproduce photographic images of any item found in the GCC Archives.
Users requesting permission will be required to sign the GCC Archives Image Agreement and Release form, please review below.
The Copyright Act at 17 U.S.C. § 108 and the Code of Federal Regulations at 37 C.F.R. § 201.14 provide protections for libraries with regard to copying for library patrons.
First, the library or archives must satisfy the requirement in Section 108(1). The reproduction or distribution must be made without any purpose of direct or indirect commercial advantage. This means that the library (or a copying service hired by the library) cannot profit from the copying. In addition, the copying for the patron must be done for purposes of private study, scholarship, or research. Second, the library or archives must be open to the public (or make its collections available to specialized researchers other than those affiliated with the institution)
The GCC Archives maintains manuscripts, documents, video recordings, and photographs associated with history of the College. In many cases, GCC Archives own only the physical item, not the intellectual property or copyright and therefor assumes no responsibility for violations of such rights or for any other legal issues resulting from the use or publication of the items.
