Sustained research is defined as the activity needed to discover information beyond searching individual indexes to find citations. It involves reviewing records for content, cross referencing other sources, etc. It is distinguished from simple "reference" which is defined as "the provision of general information about holdings, simple facts, agency hours and services". Reference services are free.

Included in this $20 are the first 20 pages of any digital images / photocopies that are requested. After that a charge of $0.25 per page will be imposed.
