Library Map Reproduction


Self-service copy machines and scanners can be used for maps in the open collections on the A-level of the Charles E. Young Research Library (YRL). Copy machines will take up to legal-size paper but cannot print color. Scanners will take up to letter-size paper.

Larger Copies and Scans

Larger copies and scans, as well as reproductions of historical maps, can be made by two outside vendors. When requesting such a reproduction, please take note of the following provisions:

  • A Library staff member must review and approve all map reproduction requests. Requesters are responsible for determining the copyright status of all items and obtaining any permissions needed before reproduction.
  • The Library charges fees for collection-related services. Fees must be paid in US currency, either online with a credit card or by check payable to the University of California Regents. California residents must add 8.75% sales tax.
  • UC users include UC faculty, staff and students. UC user fees apply to university-directed research only. Services and materials for outside research will be charged at the non-UC rate.
  • Payment in full is required before orders can be picked up. A 50% non-refundable deposit is required for orders estimated to cost $50 or more. Some jobs must be sent to an outside vendor; see below for more details.
