Availability of records

Inclusion of an item in the catalogue does not necessarily mean that it can be seen or copied. Some categories of record are closed to public access:

  • at the request of the owner or depositor
  • because the owner or depositor may have imposed copying conditions
  • because a publication may be within copyright
  • as photocopying may not be possible because of the physical condition of the document.

If you wish to carry out research into the life of someone who lived within the last 100 years you may find that the records you need to look at have restricted access under the terms of the Data Protection Act.
