and should be accompanied, if possible, by the Michigan Inventory Number of the document. Digital publications should also link the citation for the University of Michigan Papyrology Collection to our permanent URL at: http://www.lib.umich.edu/papyrus-collection.

Under this license, the University of Michigan Papyrology Collection does no longer charge a fee for the use of the available public domain images in commercial print and online publications as long as the Papyrology Collection is credited as the source for the image. Upon request, the Papyrology Collection is able to provide higher resolution images than the ones provided on this website, but depending on the request, this may require additional staff time and hence a fee.

The availability of the papyrus images online is the direct result of financial support from the National Endowment of the Humanities (1996-2006), the University of Michigan Library (ongoing), and various private donors. The continued and expanding online presence of the Papyrology Collection is only possible with continued financial support. Please consider making a donation to the University of Michigan Papyrus Collection if you are using images provided on this website for commercial or other purposes.
