Special Requests

Special Requests

The Caltech Library can work with you to create publications for your needs or repair old works.  In some cases, all that is needed is a PDF of the work and minimal consulation with our staff to produce your request. For file formats other than PDF, please contact us.  Generally, requests can be completed between a few hours and a business day. 

Examples of special requests:

  • Marketing materials
  • Information packets for conferences or meetings
  • Big T yearbook* or other select Caltech publications
  • Gift book to commemorate a retirement or accomplishment
  • Rebind a book
  • Reprint a book in the public domain (or to which you hold the copyright)

* A paperback reproduction of a Big T yearbook for the years 1920 through 1979 is $20.00.  For Big T yearbooks after 1979, a paperback reproduction is $25.00.

Contact the Library to schedule a consulation or to place an order (x6412 or email pods AT
