Copying and Publication: Regulations
Material from the archives may be copied provided that:
- UK copyright law and data protection regulations permit it
- The donor / depositor of the material has not stipulated restrictions on copying
- The material is physically suitable for copying (for example copying of material which is too fragile, too tightly bound or too large will not be permitted)
At the discretion of the Librarian, you may be able to take photographs of documents with your own camera, for the purposes of private study and research only, for a daily charge. The use of flash and handheld scanners is not permitted.
The College can arrange for an external photographer to undertake orders if copies cannot be produced in-house.
For details of copying fees see Copying and Publication: Fees

- Material from Murray Edwards College collections may be published only with the explicit permission of the College
- Permission to publish and the fee payable cover only the specific publication detailed
- Where copyright is not owned by the College, it is the applicant's responsibility to acquire written consent from the copyright owner, a copy of which must be sent to the College
- Published material should be credited The President and Fellows of Murray Edwards College, Cambridge
Please note that the College charges a reproduction fee for the use of images of publication, regardless of whether or not it owns copyright: for details see Copying and Publication: Fees
