Order Copies from Presidential Libraries

There are two ways to obtain copies of Presidential Libraries materials — make your own copies or order copies. General information about obtaining reproductions from the Presidential Libraries is provided below. You can:

Self-Service Copying

Self-service copiers are available in Presidential library research rooms for researcher use. The present charge is $.20 per copy. Personal copiers are NOT permitted.

Due to facility limitations, use of researcher-owned equipment such as personal computers, typewriters, and scanners is up to the discretion of the individual Presidential library. Please contact the Presidential library directly regarding the use of such equipment.

PLEASE NOTE:   At the Johnson Library, Johnson Foundation staff copy original materials for researchers at the self-service price.

Ordering Reproductions

Textual Materials

Photocopies of specific documents or entire folders may be ordered by mail, telephone, e-mail, or in person. However, Presidential library staff cannot undertake substantial research for a requester or select documents for copying.

The National Archives sets standard fees for reproduction of textual materials. Ordered photocopies are $0.75 per page.

Audiovisual Materials

Presidential libraries can provide reproductions of any of the items in their audiovisual collections that are open for research. It should be noted, however, that some of these items are protected by copyright. Observance of copyright and literary property rights retained by the donor is the responsibility of the researcher. 

Pricing is based on local vendor costs. Please contact the individual Presidential library for pricing information.
