Scanning Services

Scanning Services

On-Site Research

Visitors may use self-service scanners to copy most paper-based archival material, unless their physical condition or legal constraints prohibit it. We reserve the right to deny scanning of materials for either reason above. Rare, fragile, and large-format items may not be scanned. Scans may be saved to a flash drive or emailed.

Additionally, we do allow the use of digital photography in the archives. Researchers wanting to take photos may use digitals cameras or cellphones and must agree to and sign our reference photography agreement before taking any photographs.  (Photography Agreement, 98 KB, PDF).

Digital photography or reproduction of moving image materials by researchers is not allowed.

Off-Site Research

Photocopies of papers or photographs, as well as photographic reproductions of stills, can be purchased, and limited research services can be provided to offsite patrons for a fee. 

Film and most video formats can be digitized for a $40/hour prep fee. Due to copyright laws and contractual agreements with our donors, we can only provide a non-downloadable link of the material. For a downloadable link or personal DVD copy, you will need to provide written permission from the copyright owner and pay for the transfer. More information about AV digitization and fees available here.
