Copy Services

80 Most items in the collections may be copied, unless they are too fragile or are subject to legal, contractual or copyright restrictions. Permission must be obtained from the Minnesota Historical Society to publish or display any items copied from the Society's collections.


Copy Services is located in the Library's Weyerhaeuser Reference Room. The deadline for placing same day photocopy orders is 30 minutes before closing.


Photocopies of specific materials from a collection can be requested via our Research Services page. Payment is required in advance.

A copy stand is available in the Weyerhaeuser Reference Room for researchers who wish to photograph items from the Society's collections themselves. There is a use fee of $2.00 per hour. Call (651) 259-3301 to reserve the stand.
