Reproductions & Permissions

General Information

Special Collections offers a variety of photographic and digital services for visitors. Permission to reproduce, publish, or exhibit copyrighted materials or restricted materials must be obtained from the Director of Special Collections and/or the copyright holder.  If used in a published work in any format, including web pages, the material must be appropriately cited. 

The staff of Special Collections reserves the right to refuse to copy any part material on the basis of its condition or the donor’s restriction.  Many items in Special Collections are simply too fragile to be copied or photographed.  All reproductions will be done within Special Collections. When planning your visit to Special Collections, we encourage you to bring a camera to allow you to leave with images for use in your personal research. Patrons may view detailed information on permitted personal cameras and devices allowed in our Reading Room under Plan A Visit.  

Placing Your Reproduction Order 

All reproduction orders submitted to the Special Collections Research Center should be placed through your Special Collections Request System account. Visit our page on how to request copies of materials.
