Self-service scanning, photocopying and microform printing

We provide self-service scanning and photocopying from general collection items and print-outs from microforms.

Scanned images can be saved (in colour) to memory stick or printed A3 or A4 to black and white printers. 

Print-outs from microform can be printed A3 and A4 to black and white printers.

For conservation reasons, all items must be examined by staff at the Enquiry Desk before being copied. In those instances where damage may occur, our specialist Reprographic Services may be able to provide alternative copying services.

Please observe the copyright guidance provided on notice boards beside the scanner / copiers.
