BookEye scannerPlease email us at with any questions about duplications.

On-Site Copying

Special Collections researchers make their own duplications in the Special Collections & Archives Reading Room using our BookEye scanner. They can save scans to their own USB drives, or email scans to themselves. Special Collections & Archives staff must carefully review all duplication requests before researchers can make scans.

Restrictions may apply to items, series, or entire collections due to donor agreements, copyright restrictions, or fragility of materials. We reserve the right to limit or refuse duplication. Permission to reproduce does not constitute permission to publish. The scanner cannot be used to scan materials that are not part of the collections in Special Collections and Archives.

Ordering Duplications

To order duplications of materials from the Oviatt Library's Special Collections & Archives, please consult the Duplication Fee Schedule, then submit a Duplication Request 

After you submit the form, Special Collections and Archives staff will contact you to determine the total cost and send instructions for payment. Payment must be received before orders can be filled. Orders usually take 5-10 business days to complete after payment is received. Please email us at with any questions.

*Duplications of materials in the Tom & Ethel Bradley Center's Collections should contact Bradley Center staff.

Permission to Publish

Special Collections & Archives staff may be able to help you determine whether CSUN owns the copyright on materials you are interested in publishing, reproducing, or including in a public display. Researchers interested in using collection materials in a public display, printed work, audio-visual production, or online resource, should complete and submit a Permission to Publish Request. Special Collections & Archives staff will research the copyright status of the material, and respond to you within 5 business days.

For more information about our ability to give permission for publication of materials in our collections, see Permission for Publication.
