Order reproductions of our books and manuscripts for use in your research or personal use.

We are prioritizing materials for IU Fall 2023 classes and research by offering free digitization services, with some limits. See below for details. 

We are limited in our ability to fulfill large digitization requests. We may not be able to process orders that span a large number of boxes.

Because we anticipate a high volume of requests, all orders will be limited to 250 page images per person per semester.

This includes all formats. 

Example: 200 PDF pages + 50 JPG images = semester limit

Semesters run roughly January - April, May - August, and September - December.
