Moving Image Publication Policy and Rates

The Special Collections will, from its holdings, supply moving images for publication use. The rate structure covers permission fees, but does not include duplication and processing. Rates stated are the minimum until confirmation is given.*

For all moving images, supplied copies must be returned after use. Fees are established on the basis of one-time use. If loan copies are not returned fees are doubled. Also, two (2) copies of the work in which the images appear are to be provided to the Wheaton College Special Collections.

Loan copies can be supplied for preview for $20 plus shipping and handling, to aid in selection. If the portions are used for publication, the loan fee will be subtracted from the total cost.
