Obtain high quality image reproductions

You may purchase digitized reproductions of images from Special Collections and University Archives for private study, scholarship or research. Just need a simple photocopy or PDF scan? Learn more about getting scans and photocopies.


See our fees for reproductions. You will be charged when we deliver the image to you, not at the initial request. When your reproduction is ready, you will receive a link to our Image Order Gallery, where you can specify whether you want digital or physical reproductions, select the size and indicate the number of copies.

If you think that the UIC Library owns the image, but are not sure where it appears, Ask A Librarian, or talk to a Special Collections and University Archives reading room attendant.

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, US Code) governs the making of reproductions of copyrighted materials. Libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a reproduction only if the material will be used for private study, scholarship or research. If used in excess of this defined fair use, you may be liable for copyright infringement.  If you need to publish the image on the web, in print or for public display, please use our Get permission to publish images form.


Individuals depicted in a reproduction have privacy rights as outlined in “Protection of Human Subjects” (Title 45, Code of Federal Regulations, Pt. 46). The UIC Library reserves the right to require a release from individuals whose privacy may be violated by the publication of an image.


We can only provide reproductions of images owned by the UIC Library Special Collections and University Archives.  We cannot create reproductions of images from other institutions.  If the image is from another library, we advise you to contact the image’s home institution.
