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 April 2014):
1 Day licence: £8.20
1 Week licence: £20.50
1 Month licence: £46
1 year licence: £92
1 year licence (corporate/ business users): £143
Please complete an application form, available from the Searchroom Enquiry Desk. The supply of digital camera licences is conditional on researchers completing a 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).
