Please note that there are charges for the use of all digital cameras for taking images of archives and printed sources in the searchroom. These charges were introduced in June 2007. They help generate the income we need to protect front line services. The charges are as follows (from 1 June 2016):
1 session licence: £ 4.60
2 session licence: £ 8.60
5 session licence: £ 20.50
10 session licence: £ 35.50
1 year licence (corporate/ business users): £ 149 [single site only]
A single session is defined as one half-day (9.30-1.30 or 1-5). Licences are transferable between the locations of Cumbria Archive Service, with the exeption of the annual licence for business users which is restricted to the Archive Centre in which it was bought. Please complete an application/copyright declaration form, available from the Searchroom Enquiry Desk. The supply of digital camera licences is conditional on researchers completing the application/copyright declaration form and refraining from flash photography. The use of 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, 92KB).
