In order to protect the materials from inadvertent damage, all reproduction services are performed by the Special Collections staff. Researchers may not use their own equipment. All requests for reproduction must be approved by a staff member. Requests may be denied if the item is too fragile, if it cannot be duplicated with available equipment, or if the size of the request will place an unreasonable strain on available staff resources. Special Collections reserves the right to set limits on the amount of scanning or copying it will undertake.
Permission to reproduce does not constitute permission to publish. The researcher assumes full responsibility for conforming to copyright law.
As regards for-profit use of materials, fees are determined on a case-by-case basis. Special Collections requires patrons who copy materials for publication to complete a permission to publish agreement and agree to use a standard citation for archival materials and to give a copy of the published work to the Special Collections.
