The State Archives of Florida is able to provide its patrons with copying services for most of the items in its collections. The staff reserves the right to restrict the copying of any materials for which such activity may jeopardize the records' continued preservation.

Services are rendered on a first come, first serve basis. Large quantities of materials to be copied will be done on an as-time-permits basis. Records in the Archives will not be loaned to patrons for the purpose of outside copying. The Archives requires that proper citation be given for any copied item quoted from or reproduced in any publication or public exhibition.

The charges listed below are established in accordance with Section 15.09, Florida Statutes. State law requires that all fees for services be collected in advance (see Attorney general Opinion 77-120). Cash, checks, money orders (payable to the Florida Department of State), government purchase orders, and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) are accepted forms of payment.
