Obtaining Copies

Generally, Look Collection photographs have been described in groups. Look at the Medium field above. If it lists more than one item, select images for reproduction through one of these methods:

  • Check for digital images: In a small number of cases, selected images from a job have been digitized and display online:
    • Copy the information in the Call Number field above (e.g., LOOK - Job 54-2946)
    • Go to the Prints & Photographs Online Catalog home page, and enter the Call Number in the "Search All" blank and press "Go"
    • If a desired image displays you can download it yourself. (Most images display only as thumbnails outside the Library of Congress because of rights considerations, but you have access to larger size images on site.) Alternatively, you can purchase a copy through Library of Congress Duplication Services by citing the identifying information under the image (e.g., http://hdl.loc.gov/loc.pnp/ppmsca.12333)
  • OR view materials in the Prints & Photographs Reading Room. If the Medium field lists unpublished color images or negatives, advance arrangements must be made to view them -- see: http://www.loc.gov/rr/print/info/022_unpr.html
  • OR Prints & Photographs Reading Room staff can provide up to 15 quick copies of contact sheets per calendar year. For assistance, see our Ask a Librarian page
  • OR hire a freelance researcher to do further selection for you (a list of researchers is available at: http://www.loc.gov/rr/print/resource/013_pic.html).
  • OR check with libraries in your area to see if they hold Look magazine and use the publication to select images appearing in articles cited in catalog record NOTES.
  • OR purchase copies of all of the materials in one or more media associated with the LOOK Job. Library of Congress Duplication Services can make copies of various types:
    • Contact sheets can be ordered as quick copies (photocopies).
    • Slides and transparencies can be ordered as high quality copies.
    • Negatives - If the Medium field lists only negatives and no contact sheets or color materials, only negatives exist. Negatives cannot be quick copied but can be printed in the form of contact sheets or individual prints.

To purchase copies through Duplication Services, cite the Call Number above and specify the medium you wish to order. If possible, include a copy of the catalog record when placing an order. Price lists, contact information, and order forms for Library of Congress Duplication Services are available on the Duplication Services Web site).

Expect Delays in Service of Nitrate Negatives

Reproductions of all types are available, but Duplication Services anticipates an 8-10 week turnaround in completing orders, as all negatives must be reproduced at their off-site, cold storage facility.

Clue that a LOOK Magazine Photograph Collection image is affected is:
Negative number begins with: LC-L92, L922, L924, or L927

You may wish to consult with Prints and Photographs Division reference staff (202-707-6394) to determine whether scans may already exist for an image (rare, but worth a try).

Access to Originals

Please use the following steps to determine whether you need to fill out a call slip in the Prints and Photographs Reading Room to view the original item(s). In some cases, a surrogate (substitute image) is available, often in the form of a digital image, a copy print, or microfilm.

  1. Is the item digitized? (A thumbnail (small) image will be visible on the left.)

    • Yes, the item is digitized. Please use the digital image in preference to requesting the original. All images can be viewed at a large size when you are in any reading room at the Library of Congress. In some cases, only thumbnail (small) images are available when you are outside the Library of Congress because the item is rights restricted or has not been evaluated for rights restrictions.
      As a preservation measure, we generally do not serve an original item when a digital image is available. If you have a compelling reason to see the original, consult with a reference librarian. (Sometimes, the original is simply too fragile to serve. For example, glass and film photographic negatives are particularly subject to damage. They are also easier to see online where they are presented as positive images.)
    • No, the item is not digitized. Please go to #2.
  2. Do the Access Advisory or Call Number fields above indicate that a non-digital surrogate exists, such as microfilm or copy prints?

    • Yes, another surrogate exists. Reference staff can direct you to this surrogate.
    • No, another surrogate does not exist. Please go to #3.
  3. If you do not see a thumbnail image or a reference to another surrogate, please fill out a call slip in the Prints and Photographs Reading Room. In many cases, the originals can be served in a few minutes. Other materials require appointments for later the same day or in the future. Reference staff can advise you in both how to fill out a call slip and when the item can be served.

To contact Reference staff in the Prints and Photographs Reading Room, please use our Ask A Librarian service or call the reading room between 8:30 and 5:00 at 202-707-6394, and Press 3.
