Research Fees

Requests for photocopies, photographs, and slides are subject to archive approval. Copies may be denied because of condition of material or because of copyright or other considerations. Researchers are not permitted to make their own photocopies. Unless restricted or protected by copyright conditions, photocopies of material will be supplied for research purposes at the rate of 25 cents per page. Although there is no precise limit on the number of pages, it may not be possible to fill an order on the day requested, and the archive reserves the right to carry out the work over a period of time. The number of photocopies allowable varies for each collection.

Users requiring copies of photographs or stills are requested to consult the archivist about conditions and charges. Researchers are not allowed to copy archival materials using their own cameras and other equipment.
