What we can offer

We are pleased to supply copies of archive material held here whenever possible. We do however always have to consider whether the copying process might harm the books and documents in our care. Some items are too large or bulky for us to copy without risk of damage, while others are too fragile, or have seals which might be damaged by the copying process. Wherever possible we will offer you a safe alternative method of reproducing the document - such as digital scanning, microfilming, or the opportunity to take your own photographs under supervision.

We also have to act in accordance with current copyright laws and to respect the wishes of owners who have restricted the copying of their documents.

Request a copy

Please note, copying is suspended for the time being so we're not able to supply non-essential copies at this time.  If you need a copy urgently, please email archives@lancashire.gov.uk explaining what your reason for needing the copy is, and we'll consider it.
