Museum Policies

Payment in advance is required for all orders. Payment may be in the form of cash, cheque or money order (payable to the Millet and District Historical Society in Canadian funds). GST does not apply to purchases made at this institution due to our non-profit and charity status.

Orders are normally filled within two - three weeks from date of order.

Orders requiring special handling may take more time to process. Sorry we cannot grant requests for rush orders.

The revisions to the Copyright Act (Bill C-32 An Act to Amend the Copyright Act) came into effect January 1, 1999.

-Under the old law photographs were protected for 50 years from the time the photograph was taken.

-The new law is the life of the creator plus 50 years.

-Photographs already in the public domain prior to January 1, 1999 will remain in the public domain. (i.e. photographs taken up to December 31, 1948)

In some cases, the Millet and District Museum and Archives is the owner of the physical object only and may not own copyright or other intellectual property rights to the materials in its collection. Obtaining materials for reproduction purposes therefore is subject to the applicant securing permission from persons, corporations or other legal entities, which may own or claim such rights. The applicant is responsible for determining whether any use of copyright material does or does not constitute an infringement of copyright.

All requests to the Millet and District Museum and Archives for permission to reproduce or publish copyrighted materials must be accompanied by a letter of permission from the copyright owner.

All materials are to be kept on site at all times.
