Reproductions & Permissions

The Kiplinger Research Library provides reproduction and permissions services for both visiting and long-distance researchers. All fees must be paid in advance of service. A complete schedule for permissions fees is available. Mailing Fees:

  • A $5.00 shipping and handling fee will be added to all domestic mail orders.

Photocopying Fees:

  • A service fee of $10.00 is added to photocopy requests initiated by phone, fax, mail, or e-mail.
  • Photocopies: $0.25 per copy. (Also at $0.25 per copy, small orders can be scanned to PDF and emailed, thus saving the $5 mailing fee).

Request for Digital Images: 

  • To request scans, please complete the Request for Digital Images and Permission to Publish form (please note, this is a fillable PDF if you have the correct software) and return to library@dchistory.org or via mail.
  • Scans provided as low-resolution JPEG files ($5) or high-resolution TIFF files ($25). Electronic delivery is included in fee; additional cost for mailing.
    • Providing scanned images does not convey permission to publish. See request form for details.
  • Scanning orders are processed after payment is received and may take up to two weeks to complete. Rush services are available for an additional fee.

Permission to Publish:

  • To request permission to publish material from our collections, please review our fee schedule, complete Request for Digital Images and Permission to Publish form (please note, this is a fillable PDF if you have the correct software), and return it to library@dchistory.org or via mail.
  • Note: The Historical Society does not own copyright to all items held in our collections. Please do not send payment until you receive an invoice from HSW; the invoice will be sent once permissions research is complete.
