Opportunities and proposals

We invite proposals for the commercial digitisation of records and packages through our licensing programmes. To aid and support partners in the discovery of our records, our team has researched opportunities for partners to consider. These opportunities are not designed to be prescriptive, rather an invitation to you use the records as illustrated, or as the foundations for bigger ideas.


The following opportunities have been selected against a range of criteria, including their value for use as primary research material. Our opportunities provide an overview of the documents available.
