Reproduction Requirements and Fees

Researchers wishing to obtain reproductions of materials must flag the items and fill out a photocopy request form, available in the library, listing all items they wish to have photocopied. Requests may take up to two weeks for processing.

Researchers wishing to obtain reproductions of materials from a distance can use our online finding aids to identify the material they would like reproduced and indicate that to CHS staff. General requests that do not clearly identify material in the collection will be disregarded.

The Cornwall Historical Society will attempt to grant all requests for reproductions. However, there may be instances where obtaining a reproduction is not possible due to equipment and staff restraints.


For patrons wishing to obtain photocopies, the fees are:

B&W 8.5×11”  copies $0.25 per page
All other copies $0.75 per page 

Existing Digital Images

For patrons wishing to obtain an existing digital image, the fees are:

Low Resolution (of JPEG) scan $7.00 per image
High Resolution (or TIFF) scan $10.00 per image

New Scans

For patrons wishing to have an image scanned, the fees are:

Low Resolution (of JPEG) scan $10.00 per image
High Resolution (or TIFF) scan $15.00 per image

Submitting Payment

The easiest way to submit payment is by credit/debit card or PayPal funds through our PalPal account. Once an invoice has been prepared for your approval, it will be sent via e-mail or US mail.


After you have approved an invoice, you may submit payment at any point. Payment must be received before your reproductions are delivered. Once paid, the CHS will not adjust final charges unless the cost of your order changes significantly due to unforeseen issues. If the final cost of an order changes more than $10.00 following invoice approval and payment, you will be notified by email.

If you prefer to submit an alternate form of payment, the CHS also accepts cash (in-person only), personal checks and money orders (USD only). To pay by check or money order (USD only), print your invoice and return it with your payment. Make your check or money order payable to Cornwall Historical Society, write the invoice transaction number(s) on your check, and mail to:

Cornwall Historical Society
P.O. Box 115
Cornwall, CT 06753

If you have questions about payment options, please contact the Curator or call the library at (860)672-0505.


Use of Reproductions
