Covid–19 Permission Guidelines

At the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, publishing books is part of our educational mission, and a way to offer information and enjoyment to our visitors and all who want to learn about our unique region. During this COVID-19 shutdown, as educators, librarians, booksellers, and students work or study from home, we have adapted our copyright policies to support our wider community and grant permission to share our publications through videos and live-stream events, as outlined below. Thank you for your interest in our publications and for including Desert Museum books in your curricula and event calendars.
