Reproduction Services During Covid-19 Closure

On March 11, 2020 the Massachusetts Historical Society closed until further notice in an effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Our library staff is currently working remotely without physical access to the Society's collections.

If you would like to consult with the reproductions coordinator regarding a reproduction request you can either call 617-646-0532 and leave a voicemail or send an email to reproductions@masshist.org.

Please note that at this time we are uncertain when staff will be able to return to work at the library and begin to process reproductions requests.  You are welcome to place requests via Portal1791, but all requests will be placed on hold until we regain access to the collections.

To help guide you in making decisions about reproduction services you can consult the following informational pages. The reproductions coordinator will contact you with any questions about your request.

High resolution (publication quality) TIFF files – service details and fee scale
