Instructions for ordering reproductions of items from the library's special collections are included below. If you have any questions, please contact us email@example.com.
Please note that Yale Library is currently piloting a new service to support digitization of its collections. You will receive a confirmation email once the processing of your order begins. Due to a heavy volume of requests, our recent turnaround time has been 10-14 weeks. We are adjusting our workflows to meet current demand. Your order may take a different amount of time depending on the complexity of order, condition of material, and availability of staff. We will do our best to keep to that turnaround time, but circumstances may make the process take longer.
To initiate a photoduplication request, you must be registered to use Special Collections at Yale. If you have not yet registered in the system, you’ll need to create a new account. More information is available in the Guide to Using Special Collections at Yale: Register If you have any difficulty, please do not hesitate to contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to request an image:
Find the item you want in one of the Yale Library catalogs (Orbis, Quicksearch, or Archives at Yale). For further details about finding special collections materials see Find and Request. The steps for requesting images varies slightly between systems.
Alternatively, you can submit a digitization request directly through your account. Log into your Yale Special Collections account and click "Digital Copies" in the top menu bar.
Please note that all requests are subject to review by Yale Library Access Services staff. The library reserves the right to revise an order due to preservation concerns or time constraints. If an order must be changed to a different format, the patron will be notified of the change.
