Search Collection Guides:
The Archives Service Center (ASC) offers reproductions for many of its manuscripts, photographs and other audio-visual materials for a modest fee. Archives Service Center staff can also perform search and photocopying services for some designated collections. Please refer to the ASC Fees for Services (PDF) for pricing information.
Reproduction requests can be submitted by completing the following form:
The form can be emailed to Contact Us to start processing your order, but you are still required to submit a signed form and payment through the US mail (or in person) before your order is fulfilled. At this time the Archives Service Center can only accept cash, checks or money orders payable to the “University of Pittsburgh.”
All requests for photographic and media reproductions are filled in the order in which they are received. Acquiring reproductions of material from the Archives Service Center does not constitute permission to publish, broadcast, or exhibit. Please refer to our Usage Policies and Guidelines for more information.
The Archives Service Center requires two weeks lead-time to process a reproduction order. A $25.00 rush fee will be charged for orders that require turn-around time within five business days or sooner.
Requestors should be reminded that the copyright status of photographs and audiovisual material is often difficult to determine, because it is affected by criteria such as the photographer’s employment status (i.e. work for hire), the date material was created, the date material was first published, and information associated with its first publication. It is the responsibility of the requestor to verify copyright status for purposes other than private use.
