Reproduction Services

The MHS offers researchers three options for obtaining reproductions of our holdings:

Low-resolution (reference quality) PDF files – service details and fee scale

High resolution (publication quality) TIFF files – service details and fee scale

Photo prints (suitable for framing and display) - service details and fee scale

The staff will not reproduce materials in violation of copyright or donor restrictions. The staff also reserves the right to refuse requests for copies of items too fragile to be safely reproduced, and will not create low-resolution files of original materials that are available in another format (facsimiles or microforms).

Researchers visiting the library may create, free of charge, both non-flash photographs of materials in our reading room (see What to Bring) and PDF files of collections available on microfilm. Researchers visiting the library may also request reproductions be made by MHS staff for a fee.

Statement on Copyright

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
