Presently, the literary rights reside with both the McGavin family and the Harold B. Lee Library. Permission from both parties is necessary prior to the publication of any of the material in the collection. The family retains first publishing rights to the book-length unpublished literary manuscripts. No one is to quote from them in part or in full without the express permission of the family. Royalties derived from such literary manuscripts, when and if published, also belong to the family. It is the responsibility of the researcher to obtain any necessary copyright clearances.Permission to publish material from E. Cecil McGavin (1900-1975) Collection must be obtained from the Supervisor of Reference Services and/or the L. Tom Perry Special Collections Board of Curators.
