Due to staff constraints orders are taking at least six weeks to process and ship.

There may be speedier, more cost-effective alternatives to ordering low resolution scans:

If neither of these options will work for you, you may place an order remotely for low resolution scans.


  • All delivery will be in digital format via the internet unless specified otherwise
  • Please let the Duplication Coordinator know what your deadline is
  • Rush fees apply to orders that must be delivered in five business days


All low resolution scanning requests require prepayment:

  • In cases where the exact number of scans required is unknown, the requester will authorize the Briscoe Center to make a specified number of copies.
  • The Briscoe Center will invoice the requester for this specified amount.
  • Once the requester has provided the Briscoe Center with either a credit card number or a check for the amount on the invoice, work will begin on the request.
  • If the request requires fewer scans than specified, the Briscoe Center will adjust the invoice to reflect the lower fee and process the payment.
  • if the request requires more scans than specified on the invoice, the Briscoe Center will get the requester's consent before proceeding.


  • $10 basic service charge on all orders
  • $.50 per page for copying (reduced to $.25 per page for orders placed in the Reading Room)
  • Rush fees (if applicable): additional $.50 per image (or $.25 for orders placed onsite)
  • Microfilm duplication $35 per reel for existing negative

Other restrictions:

  • Permission must be obtained from the Briscoe Center to place copies of manuscript materials in other archival institutions
  • Low resolution scans are for personal study or research and cannot be published, exhibited, or reproduced in any way.
