What are the copyright restrictions for the art images?

We encourage churches and other educational communities to make use of the art images. The images (linked from the Vanderbilt Art in the Christian Tradition website -- http://diglib.library.vanderbilt.edu/act-search.pl) have some limitations: the use of the art image must be non-commercial, attributed to the artist/photographer, and if shared, done so with these original limitations. The Vanderbilt ACT website itself should also be attributed.

DAILY LECTIONARY READINGS NOW AVAILABLE VIA LINK-OUT: Daily readings expand the range of biblical reading in worship and personal devotion by providing daily citations for the full three-year cycle of the Revised Common Lectionary. These readings complement the Sunday and festival readings: Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare the reader for the Sunday ahead; Monday through Wednesday readings help the reader reflect on and digest what they heard in worship. You can also find the readings by looking for the "DAILY" link on the Sunday and festival scripture text pages; it is in the box on the right hand side of the screen.
