SPARC Research Services Request
When you cannot visit Special Collections, our personnel can search for the information you need. We provide customized, fee-based research services to
• Business and industry
• Government entities
Please review the fee schedule below; also note: in addition to the time spent researching and reporting, you will be charged for time required for retrieving and returning items as well as preparing materials to be sent to you. Note there will be a one hour minimum service charge.
If your request(s) require digitization services, then please see the Digitization Rights and Reproductions Fee Schedule on our website.
FIT community (with valid ID) and alumni: $50.00 per hour (up to 5 pages report)
Non-FIT community: $75.00 per hour (up to 5 pages report)
Rush service: $25.00 per hour (in addition to other fees)
Please allow no less than two (2) weeks to process your request; if you are under a very tight deadline, then additional fees will apply. Also note that semester workflow will dictate priority as to provision of service and that FIT-internal needs will take priority over all others. We cannot guarantee a specific delivery date.
Materials are delivered once payment has been received.
