Digital Reproduction Policy

The Digital Services Department of the Weinberg Memorial Library offers limited services for the digitization and provision of digital images of special collections materials to Library patrons.

In order to best preserve the Weinberg Memorial Library's collections, the Special Collections Librarian may deny any request for digitization that might damage the original item.

The Digital Services department completes most digitization requests within 15 business days. Rush requests will be honored to the extent possible. Larger requests may take more time for digitization; the Digital Services department will inform the requestor of the target date for completion. Staff and equipment availability may prevent Digital Services from being able to complete larger projects. The Digital Services department reserves the right to limit the size of requests. Some larger requests may involve delivery or shipping fees. A Digital Services staff member will contact you when your order is ready for delivery.

The Digital Services department has the capability to scan manuscripts and photographs up to 11x17 inches and slides and negatives of standard sizes. Images will be provided at 300 dpi in a compressed jpeg format, unless other specific arrangements are made. Depending on the number and size of the digital files, images can be delivered on CD or DVD, via download from the University's Royal Drive, or on a USB drive provided by the patron.

Copyright law provides protection to unpublished as well as published works. By providing reproductions of special collections materials, the Weinberg Memorial Library does not grant permission to publish or exhibit the items, including posting images on the internet. It is the responsibility of the requestor to obtain all permissions for use from the copyright holder. In the event that the University of Scranton is the copyright holder, permission must be requested in writing from the Dean of the Weinberg Memorial Library. The requestor must inform the Weinberg Memorial Library of any publication or commercial use of the images. The Weinberg Memorial Library reserves the right to deny commercial use of images. All image uses must cite The University of Scranton Weinberg Memorial Library as the source of the image.

To request copies of existing digitized images, contact the Digital Services Department at digitalcollections@scranton.edu.
