If you need help finding material or have questions about its condititon or copyright status you can contact us.
Are there any copyright restrictions?
Large parts of NLS's private archives are protected by copyright. For NLS to be able to process your request for copies of material which is protected by copyright we need to know that you will retrieve permission from the copyright holder.
This is regulated by an agreement. Observe that NLS can’t process the request before a signed copy of the agreement has been received.
Can I photograph the material with my own camera?
Contact the staff in the Special Reading Room for an assessment in each individual case. Whether a photograph can be taken is assessed by the state of the material and its copyright status.
