Archives Policies and Fees
General schedule of charges
Review our General Schedule of Charges (PDF).
We can photocopy most of the items in the Archives collections if you need us to.
We reserve the right to restrict the copying of any materials that could be harmed by such activity. Preservation is our goal.
Services are rendered on a first come, first served basis.
Large copy orders will be done as quickly as time permits.
We will not loan records for outside copying.
The Archives requires that proper citation be given for any copied item quoted from or reproduced in any publication or public exhibition.
Charges below are determined by Section 15.09, Florida Statutes. State law requires that all fees for services be collected in advance (see Attorney General Opinion 77-120).
We accept cash, checks, money orders (payable to the Florida Department of State), government purchase orders and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard and Discover). Please call with credit card numbers.
