Instructions for Purchase by Budget/FOPAL Number

Purchasing Prints or digital files by budget number

Prints and Digital downloads of images created beginning March 1, 2015 may be selected and ordered in the Missouri State University Digital Archives by using Lightboxes.

Lightboxes allow you to select and group images from different galleries and collections into one. You may comment, add, and remove imagesfrom a specific Lightbox. You may also share these Lightboxes with others. This makes it a great tool to use when collaborating on a project that needs images.

Downloading or purchase of prints

When images have been added to a Lightbox, the Lightbox will need to be “shared” with Photographic Services. When sharing the Lightbox with PhotographicServices@MissouriState.edu include your budget number in the comments box along with your choice of digital images or prints and the size of prints requested. Please refer to the price list on the Photographic Services webpage or below. You will be emailed your images or sent a link where you may download your images, prints will be delivered via campus mail.
