The Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives will allow for limited photocopying of unrestricted materials. All photocopying decisions are made on a case by case basis, by staff, in accordance with the following terms and conditions:
- Researchers will complete and sign a Reproduction Request Form.
- Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives will allow the photocopying of documents in good condition. However, it reserves the right to refuse or to limit a duplication request at staff’s discretion. Some items may not be photocopied due to fragility, deterioration, binding conditions, etc.
- The charge for photocopying is $0.10 per each 8.5”x11” or 8.5”x14” sheet of paper and $0.20 per each 11”x17” sheet of paper.
- For long-distance requests (email/phone), staff will provide a page count, and a cost estimate of the copying charges.
- All payments must be in USD (United States dollar). Cash and paper check payments may be made in person at the department. For long-distance requests, checks can be made payable to Jackson Library and should be drawn on a US-based bank. Special Collections and University Archives do not accept credit cards. Once the payment is received by staff, the photocopied materials will be mailed to the patron.
- For long-distance requests, shipping charges will be determined by the weight of the materials mailed and the intended destination. For example, the charge of continental US shipping of $5.00 per 100 pages will cover the cost of postage. For international and non-continental US charges, a cost will be quoted by weight and destination.
- Reproductions will be used only for personal reference and research and are not to be sold or recopied. Copies may not be added to the holdings of another library or repository.
- Duplication of material by the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives does not constitute permission to publish. The patron will have to submit a formal request to use these materials in any publication.
- Reproductions are to be used within the definitions of "fair use" under the copyright laws of the United States. It is the responsibility of the person requesting copies to obtain use rights from the copyright holder.
- Restricted materials will not be copied.
- As clear copies cannot always be made from original materials, copies are purchased at the risk of the requestor.
- Martha Blakeney Special Collection and University Archives does not offer rush services but always handles request in the order in which they were received. The staff will make every effort to complete every request in a timely manner.
