Publication Permission Fees

Please note: We expect an interruption in image services in early 2020 due to the Folger’s building renovation project. Priority will be given to requests received by December 31, 2019.

Fees apply only to publication beyond the scope of the CC BY-SA license; see our Permissions page for more information on licensing.

Permission fees are waived for non-commercial publication by registered non-profits, including university presses, regardless of the license they use.
