CSU Libraries Archives & Special Collections encourages patrons to use personal cameras to capture images during research visits and allows an unlimited number of photos if taken by the researcher. If needed, we can provide up to 100 photocopies or photocopier scans per day free of charge.
Before proceeding with reproduction, Colorado State University Archives & Special Collections staff will review the requested materials to determine if they are stable enough to be photocopied or scanned.
Digitization Fee Schedule
Researchers can request high resolution digital scans of materials for a fee.
The not-for-profit research fee is $25.00 per scanned image. Researchers asking for scans of images for research use will need to re-apply later for a licensing agreement if the scans are to be used in a for-profit capacity (i.e. publishing). Please note that these fees are waived for requests from CSU administrative, departmental, and college offices.
Researchers requesting images for commercial-use publication, exhibition, broadcasting, or internet display of images must contact Archives & Special Collections to discuss licensing agreements and permission to publish. Please be aware that permission is for one-time-only use. Fees are $50 per image and include cost of scanning.
