Duplication Services

Please read all required forms concerning duplication services and permission to publish.  All appropriate forms must be completed prior to obtaining reproductions.  Publication of materials requires completion of a “Permission to Publish” form.  Please note that a signature is required for all forms.  Clear reproductions cannot always be made from the original materials and duplications are purchased at the risk of the requester.  Hunter Library reserves the right to refuse or to limit a duplication request at staff’s discretion.

Delivery

Hunter Library will make every effort to complete a request in a timely manner, but cannot guarantee a delivery date due to staff obligations, complexity of the request, and prior commitments.  Reproductions will be provided by photocopies, CD / DVD for digital images, or email based on the size of the image.  An additional charge will be included for postal or other freight charges.  Hunter Library does not assume any responsibility for items lost or delayed by delivery.
