Permissions and Reproductions

Researchers may order photocopies or scans of most materials for a fee (see rates below). Orders are fulfilled upon receipt of a check payment, signed registration form, and a completed use and reproduction policy order form. Use of a digital camera within the Archives is allowed only under the terms of the reproduction policy. Photocopies and digital photographs may be used for personal reference and research only. Permission to publish or share materials in any other way must be requested separately through a completed permission form.
