Due to their unique or fragile nature, or for other reasons, some materials in the St. Croix Collection may not be copied; others may be copied by library staff only. The number of copies that may be copied for a given user may be limited, and most copies are subject to a preservation fee.
Patrons who visit the library must check with staff before copying materials. The library has a public photocopier, and the St. Croix Collection houses a public computer and scanner that are available for public use for copying selected St. Croix Collection materials. A personal computer and scanner may be used for copying St. Croix Collections materials, however, the preservation fee still applies.
Off-site Copy Requests
Requests for copies via telephone, U. S. Postal Service mail, or email should be sent to the attention of the Information Center. The copy fee is $1.00 per copy, which includes postage and handling. Limits may apply.
In all cases, copyright laws apply.
