The Special Collections and Archives department provides both quick reproduction and high-quality reproduction services for a fee. Restrictions may apply to items, series, or entire collections due to donor agreements, copyright restrictions, or fragility of materials. We reserve the right to limit or refuse duplication.
Requests for Reproduction for Personal Research
Reproductions are provided for personal research only and do not include permission to produce, reproduce, publish, exhibit, broadcast, or electronically disseminate the reproduced materials. Permission for these uses must be obtained by separate agreement(s) with the Special Collections and Archives department. In addition, drawings from the collection may not be used to build new structures.
To order duplications of materials from Special Collections and Archives, please read, fill out, and sign the first page of the Reproduction Request Form. Fill out the second page as completely as possible, consulting with Special Collections and Archives staff as necessary.
Send the completed form with a check or money order (made payable to Kennedy Library) for the total cost of the copies, and the processing fee to:
