raise the file size limit

Is there a way to raise the file size limit solely for the NESRI – Northeast Slavery Records Index – site? I have some large PDF and image files that I want to include in my gallery, but they are rejected due to size. Right now I maintain them on a private website and link to them, but I woold prefer to have them in the gallery.

Copying over the response from #14812:
On the file sizes, I have some huge documents like “Documents illustrative of the history of the slave trade to America.” One volume can be 110 megabytes, but I can break them up into sections.
My goal is to have the NESRI site exist for a long time under the direction of future co-directors. I am trying to make to technically simplified so that future director are not searching round to locate documents searching in off-site hosting entities.
Thanks for the details. Our server supports individual uploaded files up to 40MB. This is not due to a WordPress configuration but instead is a server-wide config value that I don't have the ability to change directly. I'll send an email to our IT partners to see whether it's possible to consider an increase.
