Photocopy Requests

NEHGS Library


The photocopy service has resumed operations. With a limited number of staff working on-site during the COVID-19 emergency, there may be a delay in fulfilling requests.

Please continue to submit your requests as usual. Thank you.

If there is a book, periodical, or manuscript from the NEHGS Library collections which you would like to view, you may request a photocopy of pages from that item. Guests and members may request copies of articles from periodicals and pages from books. Manuscript and Rare Book Collection copies are available to American Ancestors/NEHGS members.

To place a request, please complete the form below. If you do not know the title, author, or call number, please try searching in our online library catalog.
