Record copying

Once you’ve identified a document within Discovery, our catalogue, you can request digital or paper copies of it.

You may find that the record you require has already been digitised. If so, Discovery will give you details on how to access a digital copy.

If you require paper copies rather than digital files, please contact us for more information.

If the record has not been digitised, you can request a copy to be made for you. All such requests start with a non-refundable page check costing £8.40. The page check involves a member of staff finding the original document and reviewing it to assess if the information can be located and its suitability for copying.

If copies can be made, the price you pay for them will depend on the type and number of copies you want. View our current record copying prices. Our copying prices are changing on Friday 1 February 2019 – see what the new prices will be (PDF, 0.34 MB).

This process takes approximately 24 working days from start to finish. Contact us to find out more.

If you are interested in having multiple records digitised, read about our digitisation services, or email our digitisation team to find out more.
