Reproduction for Research Purposes:

The OSU Libraries Special Collections & Archives Research Center is committed to providing patrons with accurate reproductions of materials within its holdings for research purposes. Photocopies or other reproductions of materials in the OSU SCARC are provided as a service to expedite research and lessen wear on documents, and are made solely for the personal use of the individual researcher requesting them. Photocopies and other reproductions may not be transferred to another individual or organization, deposited at another institution, published in any form, in whole or in part (including publication on the Internet), or reduplicated, in whole or in part, without prior permission of the Oregon State University Libraries Special Collections & Archives Research Center, and/or the copyright holder.

Having agreed to the terms and conditions governing examination of SCARC materials, a researcher may be granted permission to take non-flash photographs of departmental materials (accompanied by a "Property of OSU Libraries SCARC" block in either the top left or bottom right corner of the image) or produce a self-service photocopy. In some cases, SCARC staff may be unable to allow copies or photographs to be made by the patron due to material type and/or condition. If so, staff or a third-party laboratory may be able to provide duplication services.

Please note that, in rare cases, SCARC staff may be unable to duplicate materials due to the type or physical condition of the materials, the amount of staff time required to complete the duplication process, special restrictions imposed by the donor, copyright law, right-to-privacy statutes, or other reasons.

A complete listing of associated services and fees may be found on the SCARC Fee Schedule.

Reproduction for Publication Purposes:

Patrons may apply for the right to reproduce and publish content owned by the Special Collections & Archives Research Center via the Permission to Publish form. Please note that SCARC cannot provide permission to reproduce all content within its holdings and may direct patrons to third party sources for additional permissions. A complete listing of publication fees may be found on the SCARC Fee Schedule.


The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies and other reproductions of copyrighted materials. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specific conditions is that the photocopy or production is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable to copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.

In consideration of my being granted permission to examine materials on terms set forth here, I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the State of Oregon, the State Board of Higher Education, Oregon State University, and their officers, employees and agents from and against all claims and actions arising out of my use of the Valley Library Special Collections & Archives Research Center materials which are provided to me. I also warrant that I have read the appropriate rules governing the use of SCARC and agree to abide by them.
