    Manuscript Research and Copies

    Materials in the R. Stanton Avery Special Collections differ from books and other materials found in the NEHGS Research Center. In addition to being one-of-a-kind resources, manuscript collections often contain papers, notes, compilations, and other materials and often require consultation with a member of the Manuscript Department as they are examined and photocopied. Because of this, a search of the R. Stanton Avery Special Collections (including requests for photocopies) are subject to the Research for Hire rate structure. 

    The decision to photocopy materials from any manuscript is made by the Archivist, not the NEHGS Research Services Staff. You can request these materials online. Please note that this service is only available to members. You can check the status of your membership or learn more about becoming a member of the society online.

A maximum of 3 records may be obtained through each request. Requests can be made online or by downloading and mailing an order form. Copies are made in accordance with copyright law.

Once NEHGS receives the film, you will be notified via e-mail that the film has arrived and the date that it will be returned to Salt Lake City.
