The Post deposited the "Star collection" at the Library-- clips, photo morgue, papers/records, etc. they purchased when the Star closed. More info is at our website: http://www.dclibrary.org/node/2607. The Post retains copyright to the photos but thru an agreement between DCPL & thePost, we/I handle all licensing & reproductions. We also have all editions of the Star on microfilm in our main reading room."
