Reproduction Services During Covid-19 Closure

On March 11, 2020 the Massachusetts Historical Society closed to the public until further notice in an effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Our staff is currently working with limited access to the collections and is able to process low-resolution (reference), high resolution (publication quality), and photo print orders though delivery times may be slower than typical. 

Citation/quotation permission requests and licensing requests for images are also being processed at this time.

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

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.

Low-resolution (reference quality) PDF files – service details and fee scale

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

Photo prints (suitable for framing and display) - service details and fee scale
