Changes to self-service copying facilities from 11 December 2017
From 11 December 2017, The National Archives will no longer provide self-service printing facilities or camera stations for users onsite.
You will still be able to obtain copies of documents. For original documents, you are welcome to bring in your camera, phone or other device to take images (please note that devices that illuminate or physically touch a document will not be permitted). Digital documents can be downloaded onsite and sent via email, free of charge.
If you require high-quality paper copies of original records, our record copying service will be able to provide these for you at our standard advertised rates.
If you have unused funds on your record copying card or readers ticket, you will be able to obtain a refund after 11 December 2017.
This decision has been made in response to a significant decrease in the demand for copying services over the past four years as readers increasingly bring their own digital equipment.
