Copy services

At the behest of both private individuals and institutions, the National Library provides, at a charge, reproductions of library materials from originals and copies. With regard to the archival character of the National Library’s collections, not every document may be copied using a photocopier or digital means. In such cases photocopies are made from copies (e.g. microfilm, digital records). When the National Library does not possess a copy, the cost for making one is borne by the reader.

Detailed information concerning charges for services are to be found in the price list [.pdf] for reprographic services.
