Reproduction and Publication Services

 

The 1st floor of Kresge Library is temporarily closed.
Access to Archives and Special Collections is not available.

During the closure, we cannot accommodate appointments.
We apologize for the inconvenience!

 

Patrons are allowed to use their own cameras to make copies of the materials in Archives and Special Collections, provided they have read and signed the Archives use form.

 

Reproductions

Reproductions of achival materials may be requested for use in private study, scholarship, or research by filling the duplication request form.

Fees may apply to patrons other than OU employees who need the materials in the performance of their work.

Please note:

  • Archives and Special Collections staff will produce all reproductions.
  • Archives and Special Collections reserves the right to limit the number of items from a particular collection that will be copied for off-site use.
  • Some items may not be reproduced or copied due to age, condition, copyright, and access restrictions.
  • Reproductions may not be transferred to others, further reproduced, or published without written permission of Oakland University or from the individual or institution that holds the copyrights.

Publication requests

Permission to publish can be granted, and publication fees are charged, only for materials with copyright owned by Oakland University.

Authorization to publish or exhibit reproduced collection materials must be obtained in advance and in writing from the University Libraries by completing the publication request form.

 "Publication" includes the following media: print, internet, digital, video, film, or microform.

Publication fees may be applicable. These fees are assessed by the University Libraries as the owner of the physical collection material and must be distinguished from any that might be assessed by a different copyright holder.

Please note:

  • For works not in the public domain, the user is solely responsible for securing publication permission from the copyright holder (including Oakland University Libraries) and paying any associated fees.
  • OU faculty, staff, and students are not charged a publication fee for materials with copyright owned by OU.
  • Publication fees are waived for theses, dissertations, and student projects (up to $500).

Please attribute all reproductions:
“Courtesy Archives and Special Collections, University Libraries, Oakland University, [collection name.]”

» Publication Fees

Publication fees are assessed in addition to any reproduction costs, are for specific use defined by agreement, and must be paid in advance of publication.

Permission is granted for one time non-exclusive use, unless otherwise stipulated by written agreement.

If a reproduction is reused in a new or revised edition of the same work, a new form must be submitted and an additional fee may apply.

If a request covers more than one publication or project, then additional fees will apply as well.

University Libraries retains the right, to waive publication fees at its discretion, and retains the rights to grant or deny use of library materials for purposes deemed counter to the mission of Oakland University.
