Digitisation Service

Digitisation Service

Special Collections offers a digitisation service for our rare book and archive holdings wherever possible.

How to order your digital copies

Make a note of the title and reference code of your book or archive collection, together with any specific page numbers, and then complete the digitisation form.

We aim to complete all copy requests within one week of the confirmation of your order (please note your order will only be confirmed once payment has been received).

Occasionally, legal restrictions or the fragility of an item will prevent us from offering this service. We will advise you further in this situation.

Please note: The photographic section of the Bell (Gertrude) Archive is administered separately by School of History, Classics and Archaeology. Visit the dedicated website for details on obtaining images from this collection.

Please note: If you want to check the detail of an item remotely, we also offer a Virtual Reading Room Service where you can do this without charge.
