The Theodore Roosevelt Center is committed to maintaining consistency in its policies regarding digitizing, documenting and organizing the documents, photographs and artifacts contained in the immense and diverse collections related to Roosevelt. The policies in place are designed to adhere to digital library standards, facilitate ease of use, clearly identify the origin of the materials and present the materials in an interesting manner.

We are also committed to making our policies as freely available as possible to the general public and other digital library projects for their benefit and for ours. Transparency in the digital library community is important as standards change and develop rapidly. Our policies are constantly reviewed in light of discoveries and standards introduced from digital library research. We welcome commentary or questions about our policies for both the Center and the digital library. Please use the Contact Us form to send us any questions regarding the Policies section.
