Reproduction of Photographs, Film, Video and Audio Materials

Many of the photographs, film, video and audio materials are available for reproduction.

Availability for reproduction is determined by the following consideration:


  • Production fees: These fees are charged to cover all costs associated with the production of the duplicate materials, including printing and materials.
  • Reproduction fees: These fees are charged for each image or audiovisual title included in a published product.
  • Access fees: These fees are charged when the user needs to photograph, film, or videotape objects, artifacts and/or documents on exhibit or in storage. Photographers using hand-held cameras, and cell phones, using ambient light in public spaces, and producing images for personal (non-commercial) use are exempted from this charge.

Contact the Moore Archivist for specific information about pricing for your project.

  • The Archives reserves the right to refuse reproduction of materials whose condition is considered too fragile or deteriorated for safe handling.
  • All production work must be done either through Historic Yellow Springs or when appropriate an outside laboratory designated by and handled by Historic Yellow Springs staff.
