Digital images

Research quality copies

We can provide research-quality jpeg images of items which cannot be photocopied. These copies are completely legible but are not of high enough quality for publication.

High quality copies

We can also provide high-resolution scans of many of the items in our collections, for research or for publication. These are usually supplied as jpegs or TIFFs, but we can provide other formats on request.

To order digital images please contact us for a quote before completing our order form (87kb, PDF) and returning it along with appropriate payment.

Express service

Under normal circumstances we aim to process your order within ten working days. Customers who require reprographic services to be completed within 24hrs will incur an extra 100% surcharge. Please note that this service is limited and subject to staff availability. If you would like to order express copies please contact us for further information.


Please see our List of fees for details of our charges for digitisation.

Large orders may incur a further handling charge. Please contact us for further information.
