Copy & Scan Material

Copy & Scan Services

The Kirkconnell Room is the primary access point for our materials. We strongly encourage researchers to visit us in person during open hours. Researchers may photograph materials on site for their personal use (without flash). Self-service photography is the preferred method for researchers to obtain reproductions of materials. If you wish to save images from microfilm, please bring a USB drive. We have a limited ability to provide reproduction services for researchers unable to visit the Kirkconnell Room in person. Staffing limitations may not allow on-demand copying and we cannot accommodate rush orders.

Reproductions may not be duplicated for dissemination or sale without prior written agreement. Publication may require additional fees; see Publication and Use Policy for more information.


Generally, requests for up to 10 low-resolution scans will be fulfilled within 3 business days. Larger requests and high-resolution scans may take longer. Orders can be delivered via email, be picked up from the Kirkconnell Room during open hours, or be mailed (additional charge may apply).


Reproduction may be refused due to copyright restrictions, donor restrictions, or the physical condition of the item. Materials from the Atlantic Baptist Archives cannot be duplicated or photographed without permission. We cannot provide duplicates of audio or video recordings or large formats. We reserve the right to refuse requests that are unreasonably large due to staffing limitations.


Archives & Special Collections may not be the copyright holder for the material in our collections. The researcher assumes full responsibility for avoiding infringement of copyright and obtaining the necessary copyright permissions.

Materials for Courses

Faculty members interested in digital reproductions for use in their courses are encouraged to reach out to well in advance to discuss feasibility and how we can best support your teaching.


All scanned documents, excluding handwritten-items, have Optical Character Recognition (OCR) applied to their contents for the purposes of machine-readability. Please note that this does not include additional accessibility features such as linked headings or alternate text for images. Patrons who require a higher degree of document accessibility can contact to discuss their needs.


Researchers may request photocopies, low-resolution scans, and high-resolution scans. High resolution scans are created according to the Archives & Special Collections’ digitization standards and require significantly more time and resources to produce. Please be aware that once high-resolution reproductions are created, the Archives may make copies freely available online to other users.

Fees are charged for reproduction and an additional fee for mailing printed copies may apply. Payment is required in advance of the copies or scans being delivered to the requestor. Fees are payable by cash, check, or credit card.

Baptist churches requesting copies of their own records deposited in the Atlantic Baptist Archives will not be charged. Fees will be waived for in-class copies. Copy and scanning fees will be waived for Acadia University staff and faculty undertaking administrative business on behalf of the University.
