COVID-19 measures and camera use in our Archive Centres

Please note that we have temporarily suspended charges for the use of all digital cameras for taking images of archives and printed sources in our searchrooms. You can use your own camera free of charge until further notice. Please note:

  • You must complete the application/copyright declaration form supplied by staff
  • Flash photography is not permitted
  • We shall not provide a photocopying service at this time; this is to avoid excessive handling of documents and the use of cash for payment
  • The use of personal document scanners is not permitted

    Details of our conditions and charges for publication and commercial use of images of archives can be found appended to our media agreement (PDF 120KB) media agreement (Word, 60KB).

    Further guidance can be found in our full searchroom rules.
