Special Collections Research Center

Ordering Copies of Special Collections Materials

As part of our service to readers, the Special Collections Research Center provides copies from books and manuscripts in the collections for your research use. These copies are provided in accordance with the United States copyright law. Copying is limited to materials in sound physical condition and not subject to legal or donor restrictions. All requests for copies are subject to curatorial approval.

Permission to copy does not convey the right to reproduce or publish the material. Readers must submit written requests for permission to reproduce or publish material from the collections. Some publication projects may be subject to a use fee.
