To initiate a duplication order, a researcher must create a user account.

All Prange Collection materials must be copied by the Prange Collection staff.  All orders submitted by a patron during a single research visit will be combined into one order for the purpose of billing and payment. 

Please note that the Prange Collection does not provide digital reproductions.  Color printouts are provided and shipped by mail.

Prices below include domestic shipment.  For international orders, an additional $15 flat shipping rate fee will be charged.

Please Note: We reserve the right to limit the number of copies made due to staffing or to the condition of the materials. When proceeding with large requests, please expect that copy orders will take additional time and may be completed in stages to accommodate other patron requests.

Research fees: Although reference librarians are happy to try and answer questions to the best of their ability, library staff cannot perform in-depth research services for patrons due to limited staffing.   We are continuously striving to make our collections discoverable through our catalog and our website to enable researchers to quickly locate relevant materials. We are glad to help patrons navigate these systems and develop search strategies, and we welcome your feedback.

Rush orders: Please contact prior to placing a rush order, as large or complex orders may require staff approval.  There is a $50 fee for orders needed within 1 to 3 business days; our standard turnaround time is 10 business days.
