New indexed records and images collection

 Searchable historic records are made available on FamilySearch.org through the help of thousands of volunteers from around the world. These volunteers transcribe (index) information from digital copies of handwritten records to make them easily searchable online. More volunteers are needed (particularly those who can read foreign languages) to keep pace with the large number of digital images being published online at FamilySearch.org. Learn more about volunteering to help provide free access to the world’s historic genealogical records online at FamilySearch.org/indexing.

Not so fast! Indexes are fine, but when it come to the images, there are restrictions for accessing some of them.
Some of image collections are locked behind Catalog and there are at least 3 types of restrictions: FHC access only, FamilySearch account required, in one case, no print and download allowed, due to restrictions imposed by the holders of the records.
