Special Collections provides staff-mediated photocopying and digitization services. Use of digital cameras is permitted.Policy
All duplication of materials in Special Collections and Archives is done by staff, who also determine whether materials may be copied. The library reserves the right to refuse a copying order if, in the staff's judgment, fulfillment of the order would violate copyright law, or if size or condition of the material does not permit safe copying. Turnaround time for standard reproduction orders is four working days (see details below). Photocopies larger than 11x17 cannot be made. No more than 20 photocopies may be made from any single published item. Any necessary limitations on copying from archival and manuscript collections are determined when the order is reviewed.
A Request for Reproduction of Manuscript and Archival Materials form must be completed and signed for duplication of materials from manuscript and archival collections, prior to any copying being done. The request form is used for requests for photocopying, scanning, photographic prints, and a researcher’s use of a digital camera. For reproductions from the Jacques Derrida papers, please complete the Request Form for Photocopies from the Jacques Derrida papers.Use of Digital Cameras
