On-Site Copying

BookEye scannerWhen the Special Collections & Archives Reading Room is open researchers make their own duplications 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 collection materials 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.
