The copyright, rights in the nature of copyright and all
other intellectual property rights worldwide in the images
and/or files of these manuscripts are reserved to The National
Library of Bhutan (NLB).
VIEWING OF IMAGES
The images or files of these manuscripts may be viewed
without payment or further permission, on the understanding
that they have been made available by the copyright holder
for purposes of private study only.
COPYING OF IMAGES FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY
An image or file may be downloaded to the user's workstation
and stored and one hard copy only may be made, without
payment or further permission, provided this is done solely
for purposes of private study. Every copy, in electronic
or other form, MUST include the copyright notice and reference
as found at the edge(s) of each image or in the file. The
image or file may not be duplicated in any medium for another
person or institution. The user is welcome to show the
single personal copy to a colleague or colleagues for private
discussion, though in electronic form it may be displayed
only on the screen of the user's single workstation. The
user is also permitted to display the single personal copy
for purposes of an academic lecture or seminar, provided
that no further duplication occurs or is allowed to occur.
If the image or file is required for separate viewing elsewhere,
the colleague(s) or student(s) should be referred back
to this server, from which it can be viewed and downloaded
afresh by each individual user: this will avoid illicit
copying from one workstation to another.
The URL for an image or file, but not the image or file
itself, may be incorporated in a user's personal hypertext
document. The purpose of any restriction on the use of
these images and files is to ensure that they are
always downloaded direct from the server and not from an
unauthorized duplicate server elsewhere.
Users should be aware that an image or file received from
this server has necessarily been compressed before transmission
and will therefore have lost some detail. This loss may
not be significant for most research and publication purposes,
but may assume significance in particularly demanding applications,
for example in the production of a full-sized colour facsimile.
In such cases it may be possible for the copyright holder
to supply the uncompressed file from which the public version
was made. The uncompressed file is too large for convenient
and reliable transmission over the network, but could be
supplied to the user on, for example, a CD-ROM.
OTHER USES OF THE IMAGES OR FILES
Any other use requires the specific written permission
of the copyright holder, who reserves the right to charge
a fee. Uses requiring such permission include the following:
Publication in any form of hard copy.
Use in television, film or video.
Publication in any electronic form of an image or file,
whether modified or not.
Duplication of an image or file in any networked or public
site, or in any "virtual library".
Public display in any form of electronic or hard copy
(except in academic lectures as indicated above).
Duplication for use in any teaching pack.
Applications for permissions of any kind, enquiries concerning
copyright or fees, and requests for traditional types of
hard-copy photography or print, should be addressed to:

Any communication by e-mail should include the enquirer's
full postal address: replies will normally be sent
by (airmail) post within two weeks of receipt. Demands
for immediate response by telephone, fax or e-mail cannot
receive priority treatment.
