The copying service is suspended for general enquiries until late 2023.
About copies for private study or non-commercial research
When you order copies from Durham County Record Office for private study or non-commercial research you must sign a declaration that:
- you will not infringe any copyright in the document(s) copied
- you will not publish a document originally supplied for private study or non-commercial research without the written consent of the County Archivist and the owner of the document
Please remember that publication covers more than books. Using our images in a public broadcast or exhibition, adding our images to another website or posting them on social media counts as publication, and you need to apply for permission.
About copies for publication
The right to copy, reproduce, publish or exhibit any document held by Durham County Record Office is granted only by specific request and requires the prior consent of the County Archivist.
In all cases acknowledgement must be made to Durham County Record Office. Please contact us to discuss your proposals for publication and any reproduction fee payable.
