You can use your own device to make free copies of archival records, such as photographs and documents. Additional lights and any devices that come in contact with the records cannot be used. Tabletop tripods (without extension arms) only are permitted. Please follow the directions of staff to make sure that no harm comes to the archival records.

Alternatively you can use our book scanner to make digital copies that are saved to your own USB key. We do not have USB keys, so don’t forget to bring your own.
