Clare College Cambridge

Charges and Copying


Self-service photography

Visitors and researchers to the College archives are welcome to use their own cameras to take photographs of archival documents - we will ask you to complete a Copyright Declaration form to confirm that you will only use the images taken for private research. 


Digital images of documents

If you cannot visit the archive, digital copies for private research use can be made of some documents in the collection, depending on the condition of the original items and any applicable rights restrictions. We can make copies of up to 20 pages and will make an administration charge of £20+VAT per order.


Reproduction of images in research papers and publications

We can provide a limited number of high resolution copies of materials from the College archive for publication (please contact us for applicable charges). Please note that if requested materials are still in copyright, you will be required to obtain the appropriate permission from the rights holders before we can provide you with copies for publication. We will provide guidance on tracing copyright holders wherever possible.


Archive research

We are happy to respond to enquiries that take less than half an hour to answer, but more complex queries will be subject to a research fee of £30+VAT per hour.


All funds raised from research and reprographics charges go towards the ongoing preservation of the College archives.
