Reproducing Archival Material

Archives & Special Collections offers several options to researchers who wish to reproduce archival material. Textual records and photographs may be photocopied or scanned. Photographs may also be sent to the University's Media Production Group for reprints. Video and audio recordings may also be duplicated by Media Production Group. Regular delivery time varies with the complexity of assignments, size of order and exisitng work load.  It is recommended that orders be placed well in advance since work is generally completed in order of receipt.  Rush orders will be accepted only when it is possible to handle them.  All reproduction requests must adhere to copyright and privacy legislation.
