Everything you need to know about placing an order with Imaging Services.

The British Library and DC Thomson Family History have agreed a partnership to enable DC ThomsonĀ  to scan Library material in the newspaper collections, and to make an online access database publicly available. This database is called the British Newspaper Archive.

We would like to make you aware that, if the image(s) you want to order are part of the newspaper collections, the Library will seek your agreement to pass your request to DC Thomson.

DC Thomson will say whether they wish to scan your item(s) within 60 calendar days. If DC Thomson do not wish to scan your item(s), they will inform Imaging Services who will then fulfil your order as previously requested. For in-copyright material, you will need to have permissions to reproduce from the rights holder.
