Please be advised that duplication services may not be available for some materials. Reproduction of materials will be governed by any and all of the restrictions that govern the research use of a specific item or collection, including item condition and donor agreements. Because clear copies cannot always be made from original materials, copies are purchased at the risk of the researcher.
To request reproductions from Wilson Library:
- Register as a library user (required).
- Email us at email@example.com with:
- The call number and description for the item(s) to be copied.
- The deliverable format you would like (see below).
- Your contact information (name, address, and phone number).
All copies of special collections materials are for personal research use only. Every request for copies of materials held in Wilson Library constitutes an agreement that the researcher will not further reproduce, publish, broadcast, sell, or otherwise use the copied materials in excess of fair use without the agreement of the copyright owner. For information on public use and permission to publish, please see our Permissions and Citations page.
