If the original material was published in the United States before 1923, it is in the public domain and can be used without permission from the current publisher. In some cases Hendrickson holds the rights to the typesetting of such materials. In that event, Hendrickson grants educational and other not-for-profit institutions permission to photocopy these materials free of charge for the use of their own constituents. They should be correctly cited, including author, title, copyright date, and publisher.
Copyright protection remains in effect irrespective of a book’s out-of-print status. Please check with Hendricksons Customer Service Department at firstname.lastname@example.org to determine availability. In some cases retailers such as Christian Book Distributors will have stock when Hendrickson Publishers no longer does.
