Ordering Reproductions of American Memory Materials
You may order reproductions of most items in the American Memory collections. Materials from Library of Congress collections may be purchased from the Library of Congress.
Some American Memory materials are from the collections of other institutions and reproduction orders should go to their home institutions. These materials include the collections from the LC/Ameritech Competition and from other collaborative projects. Specific ordering information is available via each American Memory collection.
To avoid unnecessary delays, please review the appropriate section completely before placing your order.
