Self Service Photography

You are welcome to bring your own camera into our reading room to take photographs.

In common with many Record Offices, we make a charge for this which is £1.00 per image.

We recognise that some customers may wish to take large quantities of images. In such circumstances, we are able to cap self-service photography fees at £100 per academic year, providing that you are a student undertaking an individual project leading towards a recognised educational qualification. Please contact us in advance if you think you meet these criteria.

If you do wish to take photographs, then please let staff know when you arrive. They will ask you to complete a copyright declaration form, and to make a note of what you take. Please also use flash-free equipment or disable your flash. If you wish to use a tripod or other photographic equipment, we may need to ask you to book a special appointment.

Please note that video filming and scanning is not permitted.


£1.00 per image taken.

Please note that a large document may require several images to achieve a complete copy.
