Lookup Volunteers

As you can see, we need a LOT of help on this page also. If you can do lookups for us

  • Volunteers may do unlimited lookups if and only if:

    1. The lookup volunteer is the actual author and copyright holder of the publication.

    2. The lookup volunteer is using primary source documents ... whether they are treking to the courthouse or using their own xeroxed copies of public domain documents.

    3. The lookup volunteer has written permission from the author / copyright holder to use their publication for lookups

  • Volunteers may be able to make certain limited scope lookups in copyrighted publications under the "fair use" provisions of existing law.

  • Potential volunteers are encouraged to review the explanations of copyright protection, especially the "fair use" provisions, available elsewhere on the Web.

  • Rules for Lookup Requests

    Researchers should not ask, nor may lookup volunteers offer, to violate copyright laws in responding to requests for lookups in any copyrighted material.
