We allow researchers in our Search Rooms to use their own hand-held cameras, without charge. You will need to complete a copyright declaration, and to deactivate flash and all camera sounds. These requirements and other guidelines are fully detailed in our self-photography guide.


If you cannot visit our Search Room yourself, or if you require high quality images, you can request copies be made for you using our Application for Copies form.  A typed name is acceptable on this form in lieu of a signature during the current restrictions.
