Order a reproduction without commercial use

How to order reproductions?

You can place your orders directly through the Catalogue général de la BnF and Gallica digital library. Once you have selected the document, use the “Acheter une reproduction” (buy a reproduction) functionality of the Catalogue général or the “Basket” icon which allows you to create a shopping cart. You can ask for an estimate if a research by a librarian is required before the document’s reproduction.

Picture collection also allows you to explore some of the image collections of the BnF and to order them online.

For documents unavailable to order online, that are not reported in the Catalogue Général, or that you cannot identify precisely, please use the estimate request form in priority*. To complete the order, the creation of a personal account is required in the BnF personal space (espace personnel BnF) . The payment of the order leads to the manufacture of the desired product(s), subject to the authorization of the relevant collection department. The section “Mes achats” (my purchases) of your personal account allows you to track the status of your orders, pay and access your invoices and download the reproductions you ordered, in digital format.

    • Photocopies are sent by postal mail (at current parcel post rates) or, by a private delivery service at the customer’s request. For digital products, the customer can also ask for a reproduction on CD that will be sent under the same conditions.
    • Art prints are sent without shipping costs.

Note

The minimum charge for each order is 6.00 € (VAT excl.).

Products are delivered online or shipped to the customer as soon as they are manufactured. Thus an order including several products might be delivered online or shipped in several times, without additional shipping costs.

*The request should precisely specify the references of documents to reproduce. References of the documents can be found in the BnF catalogs. The remote answering service SINDBAD provides assistance in the research of documents’ references.

To order the reproduction of a document protected by the copyright law, you must obtain a prior authorization from the author, the legal successors or the authority representing their interests. The authorization request and fees for these documents are at the responsibility of the customer ordering the reproduction. The BnF invites you to consult the Guide de recherche des ayants droit (guide to assist you in your research of the author’s legal successors).
