Copying and Scanning Maps

The Map Room

Many of our users want to copy or scan our maps.

Unfortunately if a map is within its period of copyright protection, the laws of the United Kingdom currently forbid any copying of map at all without permission of the copyright holder.

For this reason we cannot supply digital versions of our maps, nor can we permit our users to photocopy, photograph or scan maps in our collection. 

Copies of maps cannot be provided through our document delivery system.

Maps not covered by copyright protection can be photocopied within the Library.  We can also provide basic digitial photographs of maps that our out of copyright. 

We are currently embarked on a project to get good quality scans of our out of copyright maps and provide paper prints of these maps for sale.  Please see our Map Print Sale pages for more information.
