Reproductions

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

Due to COVID-19 and the renovation of the Lilly Library, digitization services have been unavailable for several months. As we re-start our digitization service, please be aware that we are working through a large backlog of orders. Contact liblilly @ indiana . edu with questions. 

We are prioritizing materials for IU fall 2020 classes and research by offering free digitization services, with some limits. See below for details. 

Because of space constraints in our temporary location, we are limited in our ability to fulfill large digitization requests. We are not able to process orders that span a large number of boxes.
