Ordering Copies of Manuscripts/Documents
Locating and copying records is not a “ready reference” request; this requires a search and copy fee and takes longer to provide - four weeks or more depending on current demand. All requests for copies require payment in advance. If you have a deadline, please plan in advance so that we are able to help you meet your deadline. For fees and additional information please see the Special Collections Manuscript order form
Ordering Photographs and Digital Images
Rights and Permission Requests
For publication and exhibition-quality digital images, please refer to our Image Orders and Permission form
available in the How to Order Copies
section of our website. Written permission and the payment of a fee are required for the use of any Special Collections item in a publication or film.
