How do I obtain rights to reproduce photos from the Smithsonian?

 

Im looking for some direction about using a home vacuum packing system for the long term storage of my photographs, slides and negatives.

I have a FoodSaver system and Im pretty sure the bags are safe. They have two layers of polyethylene with an outer layer of nylon. I’ve used them for storage of different types of textiles without ill effects (over 4 years in the bag).
