Ordering Images

Please make your requests for images by writing to JCBL_Imaging@Brown.edu. We are also happy to answer questions you might have.

For each image on disc ordered, we provide one TIFF image (at minimum of 300 dpi) for reproduction, and one 72 dpi JPEG image for quick reference.

Image costs

  • If an image has not already been scanned we charge : $ 25.00 each
  • If an image has been scanned, we charge: $ 15.00 each (the images in the LUNA databases have already been scanned.)

Each order will accrue a handling charge of $7.50 regardless of the method used to send it. Identify the image you are requesting by including

  • author
  • title
  • imprint
  • imprint date
  • where image is located (i.e., page or plate number or title page etc.)
  • call number, if known
  • accession number or record number from image database, if possible

 If you have located the image you are requesting on one of our LUNA collection pages, the record number of that image will be very useful in identifying the image.

Please include address. We can transmit the digital images either electronically or on a CD.

Once we have received your order and filled it, we will be in contact with you and will give you an invoice number and the amount due.
