Collection reproductions

Find out how to order photocopies or digital copies of collection material for your research project.

We encourage researchers to use their own photographic devices to take images of collection material for reference. When making copies, it is important that researchers understand their responsibilities in relation to Copyright. For more information please refer to the Copyright for researchers information page.

We can also make photocopies or digital copies of collection material on request. Digital copies of records are provided in high quality JPEG or TIFF format. Copies can be delivered to you as a digital download, or on a USB supplied by the RMIT Design Archives.

If you intended to publish a record copied by the RMIT Design Archives, the permission of the copyright holder must be obtained.

Please note that some items cannot be copied for example, because they are too large or too fragile.
