Reprographics

Readers may use their own conventional or digital camera to make their own copies, subject to advice of staff. No flash photography is permitted, and restrictions may apply.

Tripods and any equipment other than the camera are not permitted when photographing archive records. Copyright declarations must also be completed.

There is a photocopying service subject to restrictions. All photocopies are supplied for the purposes of private study (under the conditions defined in the 1988 Copyright Act) and must not be sold, circulated or recopied.

There is no guarantee that the copying will be carried out before you leave the Brighton Building, in which case they will be posted to you. Charges may apply.

Copyright

Under the 1988 Copyright Act, the copyright in unpublished material lasts for 70 years from the death of the author or from the end of 1989, whichever is the later. Different rules apply for Crown copyright material but the majority of the material in the Museum’s collections falls within the standard copyright laws.

The responsibility for obtaining the copyright holder's written permission to publish material from any collection in the Archive rests with the researcher although staff may be able to advise on this.

In the case of collections where copyright is the property of the Sedgwick Museum, a copyright fee may be charged for the commercial use of material from these collections.

Research

The Museum does not charge for admission or for advice on its holdings. We reserve the right to charge for any research that it agrees to undertake.

Personal data supplied in the course of an enquiry will be kept within the Museum/University and may be used for administrative purposes within the terms of the Data Protection Act (1988).

One of the medical officers on board was the 49 year-old Captain Lewis Moysey RAMC, a graduate of Caius College and very keen amateur geologist who donated a substantial collection of Carboniferous fossils to the Sedgwick Museum.
