Individuals, classes, groups, or organizations wishing to photograph or film within the Valley Library are requested to inform the Executive Assistant to the University Librarian (541-737-4633) or the Valley Library Building Manager (541-737-8914) prior to photography/filming sessions. We reserve the right to stop photography or filming at any time, if we determine it is disruptive to our patrons or if inappropriate or unsafe behavior occurs.
Individuals affiliated with OSU (e.g. students, faculty, staff, student organizations and individuals working on behalf of the University) who wish to publish their photographs or distribute their film in any format or medium are required to obtain a model release form from any OSU students who are included in the photographs or film, due to FERPA requirements. The OSU Model Release Form is available from University Marketing and Relations: http://communications.oregonstate.edu/brand-guide/visual-identity/photography/contracts-and-model-releases. We highly recommend that individuals or groups not affiliated with OSU request permission from bystanders if they will be included in your photography/filming.
The Special Collections and Archives Research Center receives many requests for use of its facilities for events. In order to maintain normal operations and provide adequate access for researchers, SCARC can only accommodate a limited number of these requests. The full policy may be viewed at http://scarc.library.oregonstate.edu/facilities.html.
As the OSU-Cascades library collection is currently located inside Tykeson Hall, Rm. 202, requests regarding photography and filming should be made to the OSU-Cascades Library staff.
