Written requests to use quotations from the diaries can be sent to the Hoover Institution Archives. The Archives will forward the requests to the Chiang family. Requests for permission to quote should include the following information : full name, contact information, the exact quotations you wish to use, and the specific publication, broadcast, or other forum where the quotes would appear.
Before examining the paper copies of the diaries, users must sign an agreement stating that (1) quotations from the diaries may not be published, broadcast, or redistributed in any form, without the written permission of the Chiang family, which retains copyright; (2) the diaries may not be photocopied nor photographed, so only handwritten notes may be taken; (3) cameras, cell phones, computers, scanners, and other image capture devices, as well as tape recorders and other recording devices, are not allowed while using the diaries; and (4) violations of the agreement may result in forfeiture of the privilege to access materials at the Hoover Institution Library and Archives.
