Duplication Services

Materials from the University Archives' physical collections may be duplicated for use in research and publication. The Archives maintains a Digital Archives Collection, from which patrons may freely download low-resolution images to their computer. Patrons may also order high resolution duplications from their Digital Archives account.

Archives Duplication Policy

The following policies apply to use and duplication of photographs and other materials duplicated from the Archives and Historical Collection.

  • Patrons will be required to sign and return our standard photographic agreement form which stipulates your one-time use for these images and provides correct credit lines for use in publication.
  • While many patrons initially request images for personal research, patrons are required to request permission for any subsequent publication in advance of such use.
  • Subsequent use of images is only allowed with the completion of a separate photographic agreement.
  • Images are not to be copied or shared under any circumstances.
  • Patrons are legally liable for any misuse of the digital images once they are provided.
  • In some cases, handling of fragile material may cause damage, and duplication may not be possible. Such decisions will be made at the discretion of staff on a case-by-case basis. You will be asked to sign and comply with our digital photography agreement.
