We supply large JPEGs (300dpi) as standard. Large JPEG files are 4500px on the longest edge @ 300dpi. They are suitable for more detailed viewing and for most publications.

If you require TIFFs (600dpi) or PDFs these can also be supplied.

Members of The University of Manchester

For University of Manchester staff and students, up to 20 images or three entire volumes, can be provided free of charge.

Publication and Permission to reproduce images from our collections

Corporate organizations, private individuals and staff within similar organizations worldwide may request images for personal use or for publication.  The Library, however, retains copyright on all such images produced from its stock.  The Library must, therefore, in all instances and without exception, be asked for permission to reproduce any images prior to any proposed publication.

The Library does not charge permission fees.
