About the collections



Welcome to the Norfolk Public Library’s Hampton Roads Heritage Project. The images in these collections come from the Sargeant Memorial Collection at Slover Library in Norfolk, Virginia. The Sargeant Memorial Collection is the region’s premier local history and genealogy collection. The photographs and other materials in the database are intended to help document the history and cultural heritage of Norfolk, the surrounding Hampton Roads region, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and northeastern North Carolina. The Hampton Roads Heritage Project is an ongoing scanning project, and only a small fraction of the materials have been digitized. For questions regarding use of the database or items in the collection that have not yet been digitized, please contact the Sargeant Memorial Collection staff at (757) 431-7429 or localhistory@norfolk.gov.


Norfolk Public Library encourages the use of all items in the Hampton Roads Heritage Project digital collections for fair use purposes such as teaching, research, and private study. For materials in which the Norfolk Public Library is identified as the owner of copyright, permission to use those materials for purposes other than personal research, teaching, and scholarly work must be obtained from an authorized representative of the library. Permission is not necessary for fair uses; however, the library requests that fair uses include an appropriate notice of copyright and attribution. Works of the government of the United States and, in general, works created before 1923 are in the public domain and permission is not required to make use of these works.


For materials that are not in the public domain and in which the library does not hold copyright, it is the responsibility of the patron to determine whether a particular use requires permission. The library may not make such determinations for the patron. Section 107 of the U. S. Copyright law specifically authorizes the use of works protected by copyright without permission for "purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching ..., scholarship, or research."
