The Sophia Smith Collection staff will photocopy materials selected by researchers during a visit or after phone, mail, or e-mail consultation. Photocopy orders are completed as time permits. You may request that your copies be emailed to you as a PDF file (cost per page is the same). Pre-payment is required for all copies.

We cannot promise to complete more than 50 pages of copying per researcher per week. There is 2,000 page limit on photocopies per researcher per year.

Photocopies of materials from the Sophia Smith Collection are provided solely for scholarly research in keeping with donor instructions and current copyright law (see below).

The Sophia Smith Collection reserves the right to refuse a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law or require reproduction of a major part of a collection. Due to their fragile condition, some materials cannot be photocopied.

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyright material. Under certain conditions, known as "fair use," the law specifies that libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction for private study, scholarship, or research. If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of these purposes, that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

Researchers are liable to the creator, any heirs, owner or copyright holder, for any violation of the rights or misuses of the reproductions. Researchers may not publish or reproduce any material without permission from the legal copyright owners and from the SSC as owners of the physical property. The staff of the Sophia Smith Collection does not sell these copies for profit; it merely allows the copying at the request of researchers.

For more information on copyright and obtaining permission to publish quotations and reproductions from the SSC, see our Frequently Asked Questions section.
