Map Reproduction Services and Fees

Self-service copy machines (up to legal-size paper, no color) and scanners (up to letter size) can be used for maps kept in the open collections on the A-level of the Charles E. Young Research Library. Copying and scanning of maps in larger sizes, as well as all reproductions of historical maps, use the following procedures.

The UCLA Library charges fees for collection-related services on a cost-recovery basis. Fees must be paid in US currency, either online with a credit card or by check payable to the University of California Regents; California residents must add 8.75% sales tax as noted.

UC users are defined as UC faculty, staff, and students. UC user fees apply to university-directed research only. Services and materials for for-profit research will be charged at the non-UC rate.

Payment in full is required before orders can be picked up. A 50% non-refundable deposit is required for orders estimated to cost $50 or more. Some jobs must be sent to an outside vendor; see below for more details.

A library staff member must review and approve all map reproduction requests in advance. Requestors are responsible for determining the copyright status of all items and obtaining any permissions needed prior to reproduction.

Further Information

To initiate a reproduction request, or for additional information, contact Maria Jankowska, map librarian in the Research Library.
