Scanning Special Collections & University Archives Materials

Library staff members will scan rare books, manuscripts, images, and other materials housed in Special Collections & University Archives to support UMW’s research and instructional needs, within the limitations of copyright law. Special Collections & University Archives materials may also be digitized for researchers not affiliated with UMW for a fee. Copyright status and item condition are taken into account when a request is placed, and the decision to scan an item is at the discretion of Special Collections & University Archives staff. Patrons are not allowed to scan materials themselves, as these materials require special handling.

Acquiring copies of materials from Special Collections does not confer the right to publish, reproduce, or exhibit them. Written permission needs to be obtained from Special Collections & University Archives staff or the copyright holder of the materials. All published materials must be properly cited.

Digitization requests can be made online or on-site in the Digital Archiving Lab or the Special Collections & University Archives reading room. Visit our Research & Instruction page for more information or email
