Whilst working in the Reading Room, you are able to make digital copies of most items in the collections for your own research.  Staff will advise of any conservation or copyright restrictions that might apply, and will supply book rests and weights to position materials safely.  Please do not use tripods, lighting, or any other equipment which might come into direct contact with or otherwise damage materials.   Flash may not be used, and your photographic device must be on silent mode.


Scanning undertaken by staff

Some fragile material may require specialist copying, or may be too fragile to copy. Reading Room staff will be happy to advise, and may be able to make copies for you. An online Form to Request Research Copies is available.


Use of text and images for research and presentations

You may copy text and images from our web pages for research purposes and for full details, please see Terms and Conditions.
