Bielstein’s Permissions, A Survival Guide

Susan M. Bielstein, the executive editor for art, architecture, classical studies, and film at the University of Chicago Press, wrote Permissions, A Survival Guide: Blunt Talk about Art as Intellectual Property (2006), which explores issues related to obtaining permissions and licenses to publish visual images. This useful and interesting book describes the process of obtaining permission to publish images in academic texts, using a variety of examples and includes sample letters for requesting permission.

It is available in the University Library in hard copy and also as an e-book (click here for the proxy link to the e-book).

For more information on obtaining permission to publish images, please refer to our page on Copyright Lenient Images for Academic Publishing, which has a section for general resources and guides.
