Reproduction and Licensing Fee Schedule

If you have reproduction or licensing needs, please contact the Special Collections unit that holds the material in which you are interested: the Browne Popular Culture Library, the Center for Archival Collections, or the Music Library & Bill Schurk Sound Archives.

Special Collections staff will investigate queries on behalf of remote researchers for thirty (30) minutes at no cost. For more time-intensive research, a fee applies. A maximum of two (2) additional hours of research can be performed by Special Collections staff or students at the rate of $25/hour. If your query requires an extensive amount of research, you may require an independent researcher for hire.

Special Collections accepts credit card payment. Credit cards will be billed for the hours expended on research, requested reproductions, postage/handling (if applicable), and 6.5% sales tax (Ohio residents only) prior to shipment of material. Fees are described below.
