Hargrett Library Imaging Services

Services Offered

Hargrett Library Imaging Services can produce photographs, photocopies, negatives, digital images and scans from the Library's collections for a fee. Photocopies are the most economical type of service for research purposes and are primarily used for written documents. Low resolution pdfs are also economical but can incur additional restrictions regarding large orders, staff time, and formatting. Photographic reproductions and high resolution digital scans are more expensive and are often used primarily for rare maps and photographs.

The Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library will consider requests for limited reproduction of material when such copying can be done without injury to the material, does not violate donor agreements, and conforms to copyright statute.

*Permission to publish must be obtained separately. Permission to reproduce is NOT permission to publish.

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material.

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a copy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user will be liable for copyright infringement.

This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order, if in its judgement, fulfillment of the order would involve a violation of copyright law.
