Any reproduction of material in the archival collections of the Ukrainian History and Education Center is at the discretion of the archive staff. Center staff will handle all reproduction work, and may restrict the quantity or types of material that can be reproduced.
The personal use of hand-held digital cameras in the reading room is allowed subject to rules and restrictions.
- Low resolution JPEG: $1.00 per image or page. Publication-quality high-resolution TIFF: $25 per image or page.
- In addition to per-page charges, all reproduction work will also include a labor service charge of $25 per hour, with a minimum charge of $12.50 (for jobs requiring 30 minutes or less). Orders over 50 pages are subject to a 20% surcharge of the total cost.
- Delivery by Postal Service mail on CD or DVD-ROM: $5. Electronic delivery by email or file sharing service is free.
- Staff time is extremely limited. Please allow 3-6 weeks for fulfillment.
Please note that a digital reproduction includes only an image of the item or page that has not had any optical character recognition performed on it, and therefore does not contain any computer-searchable text. Center staff cannot provide any OCR or transcription services.
CDs of digitized audio materials can be generated for a fee of $20 for the first disc, and $5 for each additional disc (maximum of 74 minutes per disc).
Also note that these fees are for reproduction services only, and does not include permission to publish. Publication permission for images of items in the Center's collections may be granted under the Center’s Use Policy and may require an additional fee which depends on the type of material, the publication or broadcast medium, and the commercial/non-commercial nature of the request. Publication of limited quotations from or summaries of the content of archival materials does not require permission, but does require proper citation.
If you are unable to come to the Center in person, the archive staff may be able to provide limited research services (depending on their schedule and availability). The first 30 minutes are free, and more in-depth research for a fee of $50 per hour (in addition to any fees for paper or digital reproductions). Members of the UHEC receive one hour of research services for free, and $25 per hour thereafter. Please contact the archival staff (archives@UkrHEC.org) to discuss your needs and to check availability.
Due to staff time limitations, we cannot provide translation services for the many non-English language holdings in our collections.
