The Museum and Archive Collections of Crater Lake National Park support the research and preservation strategies for which the park was established. Their purpose is to document the natural (physical) resources of the park and the history of the park's efforts to preserve and protect those resources; to preserve information about specimens and collections related to the resource as a whole; to perform background research on the object(s), specimen(s), or collection(s); to provide access for research; to provide information to the public. The collections consist of a variety of cultural objects and papers relating to the park's establishment and development, archival resources such as historic photographs, and natural resources including botanical, aquatic, and geologic specimens. Please contact the CRLA Museum & Archive Collections with any research requests at e-mail us.

What about copyright or other restrictions?
Please refer to the Access and Restrictions fields in NPS Focus to determine what use is allowable for each image.
The NPS may provide information about copyright owners and other restrictions as a service to aid patrons, however, determination of the appropriate use of an item ultimately rests with the patron. As a publicly supported institution the NPS generally does not own rights to material in its collections and cannot give or deny permission to publish or otherwise distribute material in its collections. Please visit www.copyright.gov for more information. It is the patron's obligation to determine and satisfy copyright or other use restrictions when using materials found in the NPS collections outside of fair use.
