Material from the NFSA collection can be made available for viewing or listening at any of our access centres. Items can be loaned or copied for off-site access with permission of third party copyright owners or agreement of the NFSA.

The NFSA does not usually hold the copyright for the works in its collection, so clearing the right to use material and seeking permission from the copyright holder will be the responsibility of whoever wishes to use the material. Indigenous material is made available in accordance with NFSA’s Indigenous protocols.

Copying and loan services are prioritised for the media production sectors and for scholarly and educational interests. We are unable to provide copies or loans of collection items for personal use unless a direct personal connection such as an appearance or performance by a family member can be established.
