It will cost you more to use the copying machine at National Archives
The National Archives current fees were established in October 2000 and this is the first fee increase in seven years. In fiscal year 2006, the Archives said its costs for fixed-fee services were more than double the revenue it received in copying fees.
As of October 1, 2007, self-service copies will rise from $0.15 per page to $0.25 per page in the Washington, DC, area, and $0.20 per page at regional archives and Presidential libraries. NARA-made copies will be $0.75 per page up from the current $0.50. Microfilm-to-paper copies made by a customer on a self-service copier would rise from $0.30 per page to $0.50. There would be a minimum fee of $15.00 for all mail order reproductions, up from the current $10.00.

Those fee increases are terrible, especially for self-serve copies. Copying expenses have fallen, not risen. If the Archives cannot buy copying machines that cost less than $.10/page, it should fire its procurement officer and hire one who can. Grad. students are too poor for these charges. For that matter, so are we all!
