Written, telephone, and e-mail requests are welcome. Staff will provide up to one hour of free research, if time permits. Additional staff research may be provided at $40.00/hr. Any payment required for research services must be made upon receipt of invoice.
Copies and Computer Printing
- Library staff will make photocopies when doing so will not damage the material or violate any restrictions imposed by copyright or by donor agreement. Copies and printouts are 20 cents per side for black and white, and $1.00 for color.
- Photocopies left for pick-up must be paid for in advance. Copies can be mailed for the cost of copies, plus shipping.
- Our camera use policy gives patrons the option to take photos of most collection materials (some conditions apply), using their own cameras at no extra charge.
Most of the photographs, maps, and drawings in the library collection may be reproduced. Note that scanning is contingent on the size and condition of the source material. Please see the library’s image use policy and price list for conditions and fees that may apply.
Library staff handles the retrieval and reproduction of all material in the order that requests are received. Normal turnaround time is 5 working days. Rush orders may be negotiated for an additional charge, if staff time allows.
Use of personal cameras or scanners is not allowed. Professional media personnel may bring their equipment by special permission and pre-arranged appointment only. A pre-paid fee equal to the cost of standard research and image reproduction services may be charged.
A signed Request for Permission to Publish Form is required on all image orders intended for publication or public display in any format. Requests for maps and drawings are handled on an individual basis.
