Publishing and reusing our material

You should complete a reuse request form (PDF) if you want to publish or reuse material from Special Collections.

You need to tell us specifically what material you are using and if you are using the material for commercial or non-commercial purposes.

How much it costs

We charge £100 fee per image if you want to publish or reuse material for commercial purposes. This is in addition to the reproduction charge if we produced the copy for you.

Copyright and permissions

The majority of collection material held by Special Collections remains in copyright. It is your responsibility to get permission from the copyright holder. This also applies to personal photography taken while visiting the Special Collections research centre.

Before we give you permission to use our images, we may ask you to show us written evidence that you already have the copyright owner's permission.
