How can I order copies or scans of items in the Music Division’s collections?
Researchers may order reproductions of collection items through the Library’s Duplication Services. Consult their website for ordering instructions, pricing, and available formats.
The Music Division reviews and approves all duplication requests for materials held in the Performing Arts Reading Room. An order may be denied if an item is in poor physical condition, has donor restrictions, or requires permission from the copyright claimant.
Researchers are strongly encouraged to contact the Performing Arts Reading Room in advance of placing an order. Staff will locate the item and make sure the identifying information (call number, box and/or folder number, etc.) is accurate. Staff will also assess any rights’ issues and, in many cases, can provide contact information for rights’ holders when written permission is required.
In all cases, it is the researcher's obligation to determine and satisfy copyright or other use restrictions when publishing or otherwise distributing materials found in the Library's collections.
