Photocopying and Scanning Services

Photocopying and scanning services are available to Archives and Rare Books (ARB) researchers according to the Fee Schedule below. ARB staff will determine which reproduction method is appropriate for specific archival materials and rare books.

ARB staff reserve the right to refuse any document or image reproduction request if such a request will cause damage to the original material, or if the volume of the request will tax staff resources. Any requests for photocopying and/or scanning exceeding 200 pages will be denied.

Researchers are permitted to make reproductions using their own cameras provided no flash is used.
