Yes, we allow researchers to make personal research copies of many of our materials using a photocopier, overhead scanner, or personal camera. A photocopier and book scanner are provided in the Reading Room. Manuscript materials may not be self-duplicated with the book scanner or the photocopier. We also do not permit portable scanners in the Reading Room. 

If you choose to take photographs, you will be provided with a Camera Use Policy form to complete and sign during your visit.

We also offer duplication services in which a staff member can copy and send qualifying materials to you. Find out more about our LSU Special Collections duplication services:
