Obtaining Digital Surrogates from Friends Historical Library

Permission for scanning of original photographs and other documents is given at the discretion of the Curator and depends primarily on the condition of the original. Quality of the scan cannot be guaranteed by FHL.

Please note: Rush requests (with less than a 5 day turn-around) will be subject to an extra fee of $5.00.

Certain restricted or fragile material may not be able to be digitized.

Copyrighted material may only be reproduced in accordance with regulations as specified by copyright law. Researchers using the Library assume legal responsibility for observing these regulations and agree to idemnify the Library for any liability incurred through their use of the Library's holdings.

Reproductions cannot be used by researchers for publication in any format without due regard for copyright and other legal restrictions. Permission to copy does not constitute permission to publish.
