How do I get photocopies in Special Collections?

Photocopy services are provided in accordance with current copyright law. The library reserves the right to refuse duplication requests when such actions may injure the materials or violate donor agreements or copyright law.

    • Photocopies A photocopy machine is located in Special Collections' Cleanth Brooks Reading Room in McCain Library. Photocopies may be made from books and vertical file materials, unless library staff determine that an item may be damaged in the photocopy process. Photocopies of archival and manuscript materials, as well as any material requiring special handling, will be done by library staff.

      Self-service copies are $0.10 per page.

      Photocopies made by library staff on-site are $0.10 per page. In addition, there is a service charge of $5.00 per 100 pages for all copies made by library staff.

      Photocopies made by library staff and delivered by mail or fax are $0.25 per page and additional fees may apply.

      Digital cameras without a flash may be used to document items in the collections.  There are no service charges associated with this, but patrons will need to complete paperwork relating to the photographs. 

      Photocopy requests must be submitted at least 15 minutes before Special Collections closes.

    • Digital reproductions High resolution digital reproductions, such as by scanning or digital camera imaging, may be made by library staff for a fee. Patrons are not allowed to use personal scanners to reproduce materials in Special Collections.
