Each manuscript is owned by a library or collection having entered the collection over the years. This same library or collection has rights of ownership and rights to its publication. This means that it cannot be duplicated, published or have another work created from images of the manuscript without the owner’s approval. The National Library has received permission from various collections to photograph the manuscripts they own and to upload them onto its website.
The fact that the manuscript appears on the website does not mean that it is possible to make free use of the manuscript.
