Copies of records from The Library's collection are $3.00 each, which includes the cost of copying and mailing the record, up to five photocopied pages. Extra copies are $0.20 each. You may request up to five records at a time. These funds are used by The Library and the Scott County Iowa Genealogical Society to purchase additional materials for the Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center. Lengthy records, such as divorce or probate files, may require payment of a $15.00 research fee.

Patrons requesting in-depth research services, including requests for specific records for which no date information is available, are charged a minimum research fee of $15.00. This fee includes 60-minutes of research time and copying and mailing up to 5-pages. Any additional copies are billed at $0.20 each.

Prepayment is not required; library staff will send a billing statement with the information requested.

The Library attempts to answer all questions within ten working days, but some questions may take longer as they require more extensive research.
