Authorization is also specifically granted to educational institutions to make derivative copies available to their affiliated personnel, including students.

However, many institutions will allow free reproduction of images of their collections for academic publications if they fulfil certain criteria, depending on the institution.
This site lists those generous institutions providing open access to images in various ways, and their conditions. Please drop an email if you know of more to add or contact me on Twitter @FourRedShoes.
