Permissions and Contact

Image Requests
The JPG and PDF files are made freely available in the Digital Image Archive for general use. For a small processing fee the library can provide higher resolution versions of any image in the Digital Image Archive. If you are interested in obtaining such an image, please contact the library at to make arrangements. In your request, please include a link to the image(s) you would like to receive in higher resolution. The library can provide an invoice and credit line, and make the high-resolution .tiff file (typically, 1200 dpi) available for download.

For requests of higher resolution images, fees shall be charged to cover a portion of the cost associated with digitization and metadata services. There are no use fees. To support research and scholarship, the first .tiff file in an order will be $50 and subsequent .tiff files in the same order will be $25 each.
