The Grimm Scriptorium is a place for teachers and students to study, learn and practice the art of illuminating manuscripts. Have a question about the website? Just fill in the comment box below and we will get back to you. I only answer questions relating to the content on this website.
The clip art on this blog is free to use only if you use it within particular boundaries. What this means is that graphics here may be used freely by non-for-profit organizations, teachers, scrappers, crafters, etc.. under certain conditions. I have listed the explicit circumstances in which the graphics may be used below.
- Teachers may develop worksheets for school materials to use in their classrooms from content they find here. However, those materials should not be sold for profit or redistributed online as their own.
- Images may be included in power point presentations and slide shows developed for educational purposes only.
- Adult coloring pages may be printed freely for non-profit purposes. There are no set limits for the numbers of copy that educators/students may print. The collection here is maintained and added to for the benefit of students young and old, health care agencies such as hospitals and retirement communities, office environments such as doctor's or dental offices, government social service centers and employees, churches and classrooms.
- Do not remove the web address included at the bottom of coloring pages if: you are redistributing hardcopy (prints) to others, are not altering the original jpg. significantly or if the copyright is current.
- Do not hotlink to the images. If you are writing on the web and would like to include an image within the context of an article, write me and ask. Hotlinking is bandwidth theft! It is illegal to hotlink to a copyrighted image unless you have either paid for it or have special permission to do so.
For further inquiry or special permissions you may either write to me or the staff at email@example.com
- Need to read further about copyrights and plagiarism?
- Need to learn about the law and Derivative Works?
Where do the materials come from and how may these be used?
Some of the articles, all of the craft instructions and those original materials by Kathy Grimm are copyrighted. Make sure that you know what is what before presuming it to be public domain resource. All of the coloring pages, worksheets, puzzles, cartoons and illustrated poems are either cleaned and restored here or are created entirely by myself or my family members.
The photography with copyright notices used in the craft articles is the sole property of Kathy Grimm and may not be used elsewhere on the web unless, you use the blogs' "reblog" software button located beneath the post. Google also sometimes uses our photos to link to our site through images or by maintaining web history through their archive.org searches. By submitting our content to Google we agree with the practice, however, this does not mean that we have similar agreements with webmasters who claim to have search pages that do not provide a direct link to our blog with every image or post listed. Search pages at pinterest do provide direct image linking to our blog, so this search software is a good example of a company software using a correct and ethical linking practice.
The videos posted on this blog belong to their prospective owners and are not in the public domain! These videos are provided by the youtube services freely in order to promote viral searches that are related under the category of education on this blog. When you upload a video at youtube, you agree to this practice.
Some of the content redistributed on this blog comes from the generous people at wikipedia.org. Wikipedia freely distributes both encyclopedia articles or current articles that have been both dedicated to the public domain or have passed into the public domain by default. These articles may be freely printed by all school teachers. However, the articles should not be misrepresented as belonging to people who have not actually written them. If you include these in a publishing hard copy, you must reference their original authors in the back of the book, assignment, or report as you would for any resource used or quoted when compiling a significant resource or turning in a paper.
All poetry transcribed on the blog is in the public domain. If the author is not listed with the poem then I do not know who wrote it. I am, however, certain that the poetry is in the public domain. If I know the author of the poem, I note him or her with the poem.
