LIBRARY RESEARCH – CONDITIONS

These charges apply regardless of whether the research is carried out by Guildford Institute personnel or by the researcher.

Items not already digitised cannot be photocopied but may be photographed. Photographs are provided strictly for personal/own use and are not for reproduction without prior permission from the Guildford Institute. Copyright remains with The Guildford Institute.

Please note that the charge for photographs remains the same regardless of whether the researcher uses his or her own camera or that belonging to the Guildford Institute.

Research of the Special/Local History collections

The collections are housed securely and only Guildford Institute personnel are permitted to enter the archive. We cannot therefore offer an opportunity to browse our collections.

Research investigations up to 15 minutes are free. For longer searches a charge of £5 for Members and £10 for Non-Members includes limited research time and includes up to 3 copies of images or documents.

Additional copies of images or documents will be charged at £0.50 for Members and £1.00 for Non-Members. Concessionary rates for students may be available on application.
