Requests to Reproduce Materials from Special Collections

Special Collections will provide copies of photographs and textual items unless materials are fragile. Special Collections is dedicated to preserving its materials and will not cause damage to originals.

Photocopying of material is only performed by the department staff. All photocopies are made for one-time personal use by the researcher. Photocopies will only be made if it is determined the process will not damage the requested materials. Entire collections will not be photocopied. Photocopying will be completed as time permits.

Digital reproductions of photographs and texts are available upon request. Because preservation of its materials is a major concern Special Collections and College Archives reserves the right to decline to digitize materials, or to limit the amount of material that can be safely digitized. Images will be sent electronically through email.

The use of digital cameras are permitted.
