We can help you get reproductions of the great books and manuscripts in the Lilly Library. We have to deny some requests because materials are too fragile, protected by copyright, or restricted by donor agreement.

To get digital images, PDFs, or other reproductions of Lilly Library materials, please contact us using the Ask a question form, and specify Digitization Request.
