Reproduction Fees

UTSA Special Collections provides a variety of reproduction services for material in its collections for a cost. All reproduction fees go toward the ongoing stewardship and preservation of our collections. Prices are subject to change without notice, and do not apply to active UTSA students, faculty, staff or departments.

All reproduction requests are reviewed by UTSA Special Collections staff. Turnaround time is dependent on the complexity of the order and the format of the reproduction. Note that large orders may take an extended period to fill. Please contact us for pricing on large projects of if a deadline is involved.

We reserve the right to restrict reproduction of materials due to condition, size, or donor requirements. We do not guarantee the quality or legibility of reproductions as this depends on factors such as binding, original quality, condition, etc.

If you wish to avoid reproduction fees, you may schedule a visit to view a collection in person and use a digital camera for personal research use. Use of digital cameras is subject to our reading room rules.

Our reproduction fees do not imply an authorization to publish or reproduce materials. Please see our Copyright & Use page for more information.
