The following photocopying policies are an attempt to balance researchers' needs with our responsibilities to preserve the collections in our care and the Department's limited staff resources. If you have any questions, concerns, or a special request, please contact the Head of Public Services at 919-962-1345 or email@example.com.
The Manuscripts Department reserves the right to refuse or to limit a duplication request in whole or in part, and we usually will not photocopy entire collections.
We regret that we are not able to offer same-day photocopying service of manuscript materials.
Copy requests are placed in a queue and filled in the order in which we receive them.
We cannot fill partial requests on an "as-you-go" basis. Your request will be reviewed and filled after you have completed your research and indicated that your order is complete.
Your entire photocopying request may not exceed 200 pages. Please plan your research trip so that you can request copies only of the selected materials you most need for long-term consultation.
You are responsible for tracking your page count for the entire copy request. If your request exceeds 200 pages, we will only copy the first 200 pages.
We regret that we cannot fill rush orders for photocopying.
Please flag each manuscript item you wish to have copied. Flags are available in the Search Room. We will not copy items that have not been flagged.
Please place the flag in front of the manuscript you wish to have copied. The flag should protrude from the folder at a 90-degree angle. You are responsible for flagging the material correctly.
Please complete a duplication form. On the form, please list each item you wish to have copied and then sign the duplication agreement on the verso of the form. You are responsible for listing items accurately. We will not copy items that have not been listed, and we will not fill a request without a signature on the duplication agreement.
Please complete a separate duplication form for each collection or group of papers from which you are requesting copies. For example, if you request copies of items located in five different collections, you should submit five duplication forms.
