Reproduction Services

Centro's Logo

Centro Library & Archives allows researchers to use a camera in our reading room to take photographs of collection material in lieu of note taking or photocopying (see camera use policy.) We welcome you to use materials in our collections that are in the public domain and to make fair use of copyrighted materials as defined by copyright law.

In addition, we provide fee-based reproduction services for collection material for personal research use , under the fair use clause of United States copyright law, based on the following considerations:

  • Compliance with collection donor and other restrictions.
  • Size and format of the original item.
  • Condition of the original item.
  • Staff resources to manage the reproduction request.

We reserve the right to limit the number of copies made; to restrict the use of rare and valuable items; and to deny a request due to copyright regulations, privacy rights, donor-imposed regulations, or other rights related issues.

Reproduction services include digital scans of collection material, as well as providing high resolution files for existing digitized material found in  Centro's Digital Collections portal to both on- and off-site patrons. More information about our physical holdings are found in the finding aids and inventories.
