Q. How do I order a print or a scan of an image?
For images found in the Collections Online database, click the 'Buy' button and follow the instructions.
Q. Why do some images have a 'Buy' button while others do not?
Images with no 'Buy' button are not for sale by the Society. In some cases these images may be available for purchase from another source, such as the artist or photographer who created it. If this information is known it will be found in the record for the image.
Q. May I order images online from a manuscript or other MHS collection?
Q. May I order images without providing my credit card information online?
Yes. However, in order to properly track your order, we ask you to place it using our online system. Instead of paying with a credit card online, during the checkout process you can request an 'Offline Payment' and then send your payment in the mail. When we receive payment, we’ll process your order.
Q. For an image, what is a Use Agreement and why do I need one?
You need a Use Agreement to verify that you have requested and received permission from the Minnesota Historical Society to use an image in a commercial or public manner. The Use Agreement entitles you to use the image in the way you indicated and within the terms specified in the Conditions of Use.
Q. What are the different types of image use?
Q. If I already have an image but not a Use Agreement, how do I get a Use Agreement without purchasing the image again?
