Services for Publishers
The Center can provide both licensing and reproduction scans for artists whose copyrights are either owned or managed by the Center. See Copyright.
For all other copyrights, reproduction scans for publication require written permission from the photographer or copyright holder before your request can be processed. Contact information is often available via the web or other resources. If assistance is needed, our staff may be able to provide contact and address information. Reproductions are for one-time use only and must be returned within thirty days of publication.
To initiate a request with us:
- Complete either a Request for Print or Digital Publication or a Request for Film, Television or Mobile App Use.
Review our current fees and allow 4-6 weeks for processing your request.
