Publishing an image
The Geological Society Library normally charges for use of its images in publications, broadcast, websites or exhibitions, however this will vary depending on its use. For instance, for non-profit, small print runs the fee is likely to be modest and in some circumstances may be waived entirely. For a quote, please contact the Geological Society Library giving as much information as possible about the image’s intended use.
