Duplication Services

The NDSU Archives offers a wide array of duplication services to our patrons, including photocopying, scanning and audiovisual reproductions. All requests for duplication services can be made in person at the reference desk, or initiated by telephone (701-231-8914) or sending an e-mail to NDSU.Archives@ndsu.edu

Please note: All reproduction requests are reviewed by our staff, and fragile materials that pose serious preservation and conservation concerns, will not be reproduced. Cameras, computers and scanners are allowed in the Research Room, and a formal record of all materials copied must be compiled. Proper credit information will be provided.

Digital Reproductions

Researchers may request digital reproductions of images. Digital reproductions may take approximately a week to complete. They can be delivered via CD or e-mail. Consult the Prices and Fees page for options and pricing.

Audiovisual Reproductions

The vast majority of the electronic media holdings are in difficult-to-access formats. The department has only limited equipment to access some formats. Because some materials are old and/or rare, we cannot allow patrons to use the original audiovisual recordings. Instead, patrons must use copies that are made from the original items. When 'use copies' do not already exist, copies must be made on demand. This process may take some weeks from initial request to delivery of the use copy to the Reading Room. Staff will work with patrons to generate use copies. Most reproductions are done by a third-party.
