REPRODUCTION SERVICE

You can get digital copies of printed books and manuscripts from Casanatense’s collections. After our permission an external agency carries out the scan and delivery activities for a fee.


1. WHAT YOU CAN GET AND IN WHICH FORMAT

icona elencoBooks printed after 1900 can be duplicated in digital low quality PDF format.

Remind that Italian law defends copyright: when a book is still available for sale you can ask to reproduce up to 15% of the whole book only. It's your responsibility to determine whether you can use the content you request for reasons other than personal.

icona elencoBooks printed before 1900, manuscripts, large size materials and some items from specific collections must be duplicated by a photographer, with digital camera, in medium or high resolution JPEG format.


2. HOW TO DO

Request

You can send a request by: filling the paper form into Casanatense’s reading rooms; using this web application or sending a e-mail to our Reproduction Office (b-casa.riproduzioni @ beniculturali.it).

Any way you choose, we need this information:

icona elencoitem information (author, title, publisher data, call number/shelfmark and parts to reproduce).

More accurate the request, quicker you get the permission to duplicate.

Permission

Casanatense’s staff checks the availability and the preservation status of the original item. If there are not risks or restrictions Library sends a e-mail with the permission to reproduce and forwards your record to the external agency.

Payments

When you achieve our permission the external agency will send on your e-mail, an estimate with the bank account details and more instructions for advanced payment. If you accept, paying, the photograph will scan the item.

You can ask, pay and get the images from your computer but, if you prefer to do all into the Library, you should know that there is no service counter, for payments and delivery, into Casanatense building. At least you can arrange an appointment with the photograph that, usually, works in Casanatense every Friday around 11.30 a.m.

Delivery

The outsourcer sends you the digital items within seven days of receiving the payment order.

You can get copies via e-mail (without shipping charge) or by snail mail (on a DVD support).

Casanatense stands over the whole reproduction service but doesn’t manage the payments and the scan and delivery activities. For more details about these parts of the service, you should directly contact the external agency: Library will send you more contact information when authorizes the reproduction.
