Reproductions and Permissions

Detail from, "Pictorial History of Writing and Printing" by Hugo Steiner-Prag 1943

The Leo Baeck Institute is a not-for-profit research center open to the public.  The vast majority of patrons who use LBI collections for private study, research, or scholarship can do so for free.  There are however, two kinds of fees that LBI may charge for certain categories of use and special services:

Reproduction Fees: LBI charges small fees for producing photocopies or digital copies of items from the collections.  Since a large percentage of the collections are already available in digital form, it is important to check whether the items are in digital collections before requesting copies.

Usage Fees: Publication or exhibition of items from LBI holdings for commercial and non-commercial contexts is subject to fees as well as copyright restrictions.

While obtaining copies for research purposes will only incur reproduction fees, publication or exhibition of an item from LBI collections typically involves one fee for reproduction (such as a high-resolution digital scan) and a second fee for usage.

To request permission for use or reproduction of any item from the LBI collections , please contact Registrar Michael Simonson.
