Special Collections & University Archives offers digitization and photocopying services for materials in its collections to assist scholars in their research. Reproduction of materials is guided and governed by considerations such as donor restrictions, condition and intrinsic value (uniqueness, rarity, costliness). Researchers needing to consult large quantities of material should plan to conduct preliminary research on-site.
It is the responsibility of the researcher to keep complete and accurate citations (call numbers, captions, ID numbers, page numbers, and box and folder numbers) for all items photographed. Requests for subsequent orders for high resolution images for publication will not be processed without this information.
Reproductions of our materials (photocopies, digital copies, video and sound recordings, etc.) may not be donated to another repository without written approval from Special Collections & University Archives.
All requests are subject to review. We reserve the right to revise an order due to preservation concerns or time constraints.
Researchers may use digital cameras and other equipment to copy materials for study purposes. All equipment must be approved by our staff prior to use.
Remote requests for up to 5 copies will be fulfilled. In some cases, we will complete extra scanning at the researcher's expense as time permits.
If the copies are to be used in a publication, exhibit, or broadcast, the recipient receive permission to Publish, Broadcast, Quote, or Exhibit from Special Collections & University Archives.
