On-Demand Digitization

Digital Imaging

  • Special Collections delivers digital images for up to 30 items at no charge, as long as the physical condition of the items and library agreements with donors allow for digitization of the materials.

  • Once you have identified the materials you would like digitized, please fill out our Patron Registration Form, a Digital Reproduction Form, and e-mail the completed forms to Gregory Yerke at gdyerke@uh.edu.

  • You will receive your high-resolution digital images via an automated download service in 2-3 weeks.

Photocopies & PDFs

  • Special Collections delivers up to 250 photocopies or PDF pages at no charge.

  • Once you have identified the materials you would like copied, please fill out our Patron Registration Form and e-mail the completed form along with your request to Gregory Yerke at gdyerke@uh.edu.

  • Photocopies will be sent via the U.S. Postal Service or may be picked up in person. PDFs will be sent via an automated download service.

Please note: We reserve the right to limit the number of photocopies or PDFs requested. We will copy no more than 15% of the materials from a single archival collection or book, and we will complete copy requests in the order received, based on staff availability.

Requests in excess of 250 copies will be charged $50 for the first 250 pages and 10 cents for each additional page.
