Collection Reference Rates
Research and handling fees will be applied to all requests for collection research, preview materials (multiple items), lending and copying services.
Credit card details are required prior to NFSA staff commencing work on a client’s job.
The cost of accessing collection material depends on several factors including copyright ownership, what format the material is held in, and how the material is going to be used. NFSA Collection Reference staff will provide an itemised quote once the client has selected collection material.
If the service you require is not published here then please email access [at] nfsa.gov.au.
