Making copies with your own camera

Please see our Getting copies of documents and publications page for details of what is permitted in terms of copying. Providing you observe these limitations, you can generally use your own camera equipment, including mobile phones, iPads and tablets, to make digital images. For collections care reasons, we do not allow flash photography and check the suitability of hand held scanners.

You will need a camera pass to make your own digital copies. There are four types to choose from:

· Single shot £1.00 One shot of a single document, valid on day of purchase

· Day £7.50 Unlimited shots, valid on day of purchase

· 3 Day £15.00 Unlimited shots, valid on any three days for 12 months from issue date

· Annual £150.00 Unlimited shots, valid for 12 months from issue date

All passes are valid for a named individual and you should buy your preferred type at reception before making any copies. If you are working on a group project you may be eligible for one of our shared annual passes, which are valid for up to 6 people; please apply to the Customer Services Manager at archives@gloucestershire.gov.uk

The Day, 3 Day and Annual passes are also valid in Gloucestershire Libraries.

We have a portable camera stand that you can pre-book via the email address above.
