Fee Schedule


Commercial users of archival materials are charged $100 per image for use of SCARC materials. These fees are not applicable to Oregon University System institutions, non-profit organizations, individuals, or commercial contractors producing materials for Oregon State University. In certain circumstances, fees can also be waived by special request to the University Archivist.

The $100 per image fee is applicable to use of images for books, video sales, calendars, CD-ROMs, periodicals, web advertising and promotion.

Commercial use of film or video is granted at a cost of $10.00/second with a minimum charge of $50.00

No fee is appended to non-profit use of SCARC materials, however reproduction fees will still apply.


The Special Collections & Archives Research Center provides photocopy and scanning services for a fee, but reserves the right to restrict reproduction of its materials due to donor agreements, copyright restrictions, condition, value, and size.
