Image reprographics service

All copying is subject to the regulations and material will only be copied if no damage to the original will result.  For curatorial reasons, all copying and photography is done by members of staff.  No private photography of documents or books is permitted.

No copying is done "on the spot": an estimate will be supplied and the work will be carried out on receipt of payment.  Orders for paper copies and scans usually take two weeks (although more time might be quoted for a larger order).  Photography orders can take up to six weeks.

How material can be copied

Copies of single sheet material can be provided as paper copies as well as scans or photographs. Photographs can be provided as JPegs or as Tiffs. For preservation reasons, bound volumes cannot be photocopied or scanned: such material has to be provided as digital photographs.
