Archives Duplication

Most Library and Archives materials may be copied unless their physical condition or legal constraints prohibit it. We reserve the right to deny copying of materials. Rare, fragile, and large format items such as bound newspapers may not be copied. 

Researchers who cannot visit our Library and Archives may order copies by e-mail or letter. We do not accept orders by phone. In your request, please be sure to include a specific reference to title, author and page numbers for library materials; and call number (if known) for archival materials. Copies may be delivered as digital PDF or JPEG. Normal turn-around time is approximately two to four weeks, but may be longer.

Email requests can be sent to:
