Copying Materials

Archives and Special Collections staff can digitize a limited number of requested materials for visitors. Staff can create .pdf images of documents or .jpg/.tif images of photographs, but will only create up to 10 images per visit due to time and staffing constraints.

The Archives does not create hard (i.e., paper) copies of materials for visitors.

Visitors may bring cameras to photograph materials on their own, but use of flash photography is prohibited, as exposure to intense light is damaging to archival holdings.
