Within copyright restrictions and under special conditions, NYPL's Copies and Reproductions department will duplicate recordings for a fee. Recordings that qualify for this service must no longer be available from commercial distributors, out-of-print dealers, or circulating library record collections.
Please Note: The Library will only duplicate commercially released recordings if the items are rare or one of a kind. For unpublished recordings, the Library requires written permission from the proprietary rights holder. Find additional details and the audiovisual request form on the Copies and Reproductions Audio & Video web page.
Within copyright restrictions, the Access Services staff will email low-resolution scans for free.
To order scans of research collection items, please fill out the LPA Research Copy Orders form.
