Duplication Policy & Procedures

The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives is a not-for-profit research center. We are pleased to provide the public free access to our vast collection of materials on the American Jewish experience. Fees are charged for duplication services only. These funds are used to defray costs and to ensure the highest standards of service to the public. The American Jewish Archives accepts payment in cash, check, or credit card.

The AJA reserves the right to deny any duplication request if duplication may cause damage to original materials.

Please note: Prices may vary due to the nature of the archival material being reproduced (e.g. oversized material, extremely fragile material). Please contact the AJA to obtain a quote.
