The research, reproduction, and publication fees we charge are available on our website at:

While the publication fee says $75, it generally reflects the hourly research rate based on the user’s category.  Additionally, we will consider waiving the fee if we are given a copy of the publication in which the image is used.

Hi Elizabeth,

I'm interested to learn this as well. If you could share what you learn, if permissible, that would be great. We, Stony Brook University Libraries, currently do not have an active payment structure, which is for administrative reasons not because we do not want to charge a fee for some reproduction requests. 

Thank you!

Hi everyone,

We are interested in how other institutions charge or don’t charge for digital reproductions and/or publication permissions. Under what circumstances do you charge, how much, do you have different fees depending on the usage or patron type, etc.

Any information would be greatly appreciated as well as the logic behind the decisions!

Feel free to respond off list.

Many thanks and Happy Friday!!
