Digitized Records Terms of Use

The World Bank Group encourages dissemination of its knowledge; papers donated to it, records, and oral histories ("Records") may be reproduced, in whole or in part, for noncommercial purposes as long as full attribution to this work is given.

The disclosure of these Records is not a waiver of the World Bank Group's archival immunity.

Unless expressly stated otherwise, the findings, interpretations, and conclusions expressed in the Records are those of the various creators of those Records and are not necessarily those of the World Bank Group's Boards of Executive Directors or its member countries.

An item (letter, memorandum, publication, photograph, map or other physical form) that was neither created by an individual whose personal papers were donated to the World Bank Group Archives nor by the staff of the World Bank Group may be subject to copyright by the creator of the record and reproduction of it could be an infringement of such copyright. It is the responsibility of the user to determine whether the item is covered by the copyright statute of the country in which the creator resided and whether the permission of the copyright holder must be sought before the item is reproduced.
