Reproduction Requests

All requests to reproduce materials from the RIT Cary Graphic Arts Collection must be initiated by sending a reproduction request to Amelia Hugill-Fontanel at

Please include:

  1. Contact information: name, institution, address, telephone numbers, email address.
  2. Provide information about the item(s) to be reproduced, including: title, author, date, and source (i.e. web URL or call number).
  3. Identify your status, for example: Commercial firms (including publishers); Non-profit organizations and independent researchers; RIT alumni, faculty, staff, or students.
  4. State the intended use of the reproduction(s): Are the materials for personal research purposes? Will they be published in print, video, or online?
  5. Give any specific reproduction requirements such as pixel size or file format.
  6. Provide a suggested deadline. We will try to accommodate your request as staffing allows.

A representative from the Cary Collection will contact you promptly regarding your request. At that time, imaging fees (if any) will be negotiated and further information will be sent about the terms of the reproduction agreement, including publication standards and credits.

Please note that the Cary Collection reserves the right to refuse any order for reproductions that it feels might damage the original. The decision to allow reproduction of our holdings rests solely with the Curator or Archivist responsible for the material.


The RIT Cary Graphic Arts Collection contains many books and other materials that are still under copyright protection. Our staff can assist requestors to determine the copyright status of an item, including if it is in the public domain. It is the responsibility of the applicant to obtain permission to publish reproductions from the owner of copyright.
