Limited Access Collection - Rotch Library: Scanning and Reproductions

Information about the Limited Access Collection at Rotch Library, including hours, access policies, and scanning procedures.

Scanning and copying

Patron requests for scans of images from Limited Access books will be evaluated on an individual basis and will be routed to Curation and Preservation Services, which provides scanning services for MIT Libraries. For more details about their services, see Scanning Services.

Scanning fees vary based on the quantity and quality of original material. Document Services will contact you with a quote. 

Scanning and copying requests that will be used in MIT courses will typically be completed free of charge through MIT Libraries.

Images may also be made available in Dome, where we host selections from MIT Libraries' digital collections.
