Duplication & Permission Services at The Bancroft Library: Fee Schedule

A guide to the duplication and permission services available at The Bancroft Library, including information on how to request these services and a list of frequently asked questions.

Fee Basics

You will be prompted to pay all applicable fees after you have placed an order through your Aeon account. Bancroft Library staff will create an itemized invoice for your order which will be sent to the email address that you provide in your account. More information about the types of payments that the Library can accept can be found on the Payment tab.

Duplication Services Fee Schedule

Duplication fees vary based on the format type of the original material (photographic print or negative, document, bound volume, cassette tape) and the format of the reproduction (paper photocopy, PDF, TIFF, WAV files). The fee is reduced if an existing digital file already exists. Please see the fee schedule below and our Duplication Services Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.

Duplication fees are separate from any licensing fees that may be required.

Permission Services Fee Schedule

The Library’s permission to publish is required only if you determine that your intended use exceeds fair use and the UC Regents own copyright to the material.  In these cases The Bancroft Library may charge a fee for licensing use of images or audiovisual material based on the nature of your intended use (commercial vs. non-commercial).  No licensing fee is charged, however, for current UC students/faculty/staff.

Licensing fees are separate from any duplication fees that may be required.
