Fees for Reproduction

Fees for Reproduction Services in the Map Collection

The Map Collection reproduces material in the form of photocopies or digital scans to the extent that physical condition and copyright restrictions permit. All requests require completion of our Map Collection Registration Form.

Reproduction requests must be approved by the Map Librarian. Decisions will take into account the condition, brittleness, and fragility of the item, and other restrictions placed on the item in our loan policy. We do not copy more than ten pages from a collection.

The turn-around time for all reproduction requests is 12-48 hours. When in-person requests are made to reproduce items 36” wide or less, we may make arrangements to send them to Fed-Ex Kinko’s location in Hauppauge, N.Y. Payment must be made by the patron at the FedEx-Kinko site on the lower level of our Library.

The Library adheres to the provisions of the 1976 Copyright Act and follows the minimum standards of educational fair use established under Section 107 of H.R. 2223 by the Ad Hoc Committee on Copyright Law Revision. Additional information regarding copyright can be accessed from Rights and Permissions.
