Services and Associated Fees
Digitization services are available to researchers to facilitate access while preserving our unique materials. This page outlines the fees associated with digitization services, depending upon format and use. All fees support the care and maintenance of collections. To request a digital reproduction of materials, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a digital copy is unavailable and/or we are unable to reformat in-house, staff will recommend outside reproduction professionals from our own list of vetted vendors. The researcher must agree to pay for all costs incurred in external digitization following the library’s reproduction standards, including shipping and postage. The fees incurred in digitizing are separate from the fees required to commercially use materials.
All fees are payable by check or money order, and must be made out to: “University of Baltimore”
Audiovisual materials: Digitizing of open reel analog video formats, motion picture film, and highly degraded items must be sent to our preferred external vendor at the expense of the researcher. Costs are dependent on the original item’s format and condition.
Architectural Plans and other oversized items must be sent to our preferred external vendor at the cost of the researcher. Duplicates of architectural blueprints will be provided in gray-scale and overall quality is dependent on the original. Architectural plans are duplicated on paper or as digital PDF files. Duplication to paper costs $185 per set of plans. Duplication to digital copy costs $185 per set. Duplication to both paper and digital formats costs $210 per set.
Not-for-profit organizations and independent creators may use digital copies of materials at no charge. For all others, use of materials will incur the below one-time fees.
Material Type Cost Audio $12.00/second Video $12.00/second Still Images $100.00/image
