Photocopy and Reproduction Services

We are glad to photocopy and mail (or scan at low resolution) items to you if you are unable to make it to visit the South Carolina Historical Society. Please keep in mind that we can only reproduce 25% of each manuscript collection, but there are no limits on the reproduction of published materials such as books, pamphlets, and maps.* Photocopy orders may take up to six weeks to complete.

*Researchers are responsible for observing provisions of the Act of 1976 and the laws of libel.

Please print out and complete the SCHS Reproduction Request Form and return it with your preferred method of payment to the SCHS librarian, Molly Inabinett:
