We are currently testing a pay-what-you-can model for digitization requests services to ensure access to our collections regardless of financial situation. We will use the “Audio/Video Copy – Marr Sound Archives Items” fees to give you an estimate of the value of labor to complete your request but you are free to pay that amount, as you are able. The pay-what-you-can model does not apply to digitization services for users’ items. We welcome direct or anonymous feedback on this model.
