The materials on the Donella Meadows Archive website are made available for use in research, teaching, and private study. You may reproduce (print, make photocopies, or download) materials from this website for these purposes without prior permission on the condition that you properly cite the source in all copies. (Please see the example below.)
For other uses of the materials authored by Donella Meadows (for example: publication, broadcast, or anything else that does not fall under "fair use") we require that you contact the Sustainability Institute in advance with a summary of your project, refering specifically to the information you intend to use and the nature of the use. In general, we are happy to give you permission to reproduce pieces as long as you give proper credit to the author and the Sustainability Institute. This is not an exclusive right to the work, and the Sustainability Institute retains all copyrights. Our main reason for establishing this Archive is, of course, to get out information that we hope can make a difference in the world. You are furthering that work by sending it on.
Along with our permission to you to reprint, we request that you make a donation to Sustainability Institute, sized appropriately to your own means, to the value of the column to you, and to the size of audience to which you intend to distribute it. Even small donations help to support the work to continually add other materials to this Archive.
