Archives and Special Collections offers high resolution digital reproductions of materials for which we hold reproduction rights or are in the public domain. Reproduction fees recover costs associated with that service.
Orders of photographs, digital reproductions and audio duplications require a signed Copy Service Agreement and, if applicable, a Permission to Publish form as well as payment in advance.

ASC can provide digital reproductions of most our materials. As with photocopying, collection or copyright restrictions or fragility may prohibit the scanning of some materials. Scanning must be performed by staff.
The use of personal digital cameras (cell phone, point and shoot, and tablet cameras), without flash, may be permitted to create research copies for personal research and reference use only. Researchers are required to agree to our Personal Digital Camera Policy as part of the registration process.
Some materials may be photocopied or scanned to PDF using the self-service photocopy machine in the ASC research room for fifteen cents a page. Fragile materials, photographic prints, and some other materials may be copied or scanned to PDF by staff for a fee of twenty-five cents a page. Materials copied or scanned to PDF by staff in response to remote research requests also cost twenty-five cents a page, and are limited to a total of 200 pages and/or images. In some cases, collection or copyright restrictions or extreme fragility may prevent some materials from being copied or scanned. In such cases, the materials must be used in the ASC research room.
Digitized copies of interviews from the Oral History Center's collection may be obtained, unless prohibited by the donor agreement, for a fee of $10 per tape. Many interviews consist of several tapes so the total cost varies.
