Photograph from the album of W.B. Carmiggelt. NAI Collection / CARM
There are various ways of reproducing material from the NAI collection: copying, scanning and taking (digital) photographs.
Making reproductions yourself in the reading room
Scanning and copying
You can make black-and-white A4 and A3 size copies yourself in the reading room. There is also an A4 scanner which you can use to scan and save texts and images digitally to an external medium (CD-ROM or USB stick). Storage media can be purchased at the desk. You are not permitted to reproduce any archive documents such as drawings, photos and sketches yourself; this must be done by the reproduction service. However, you may copy and scan books, magazines and photos from photo documentation.
You are allowed to take (digital) photos of collection items yourself, provided you do not use a flashlight.
NAI Reproduction service
All archival records can be supplied electronically. They are scanned or if the material is too vulnerable, digitally photographed. We send you the file via an FTP server. See the price list for prices. When ordering, please state the archive code and the inventory number, if known, of the collection item to be digitised.
The reproduction service can supply black-and-white copies of ground plans and other construction drawings larger than A3 size. Depending on the condition of the material, some documents cannot be copied. Sometimes it is better to photograph vulnerable documents or documents with a sharp fold.
You can also order poster-size prints of collection items. The digital file is printed on high-quality paper up to A0 size, and the copy sent to you in a sturdy poster tube.
Terms of delivery
Reproductions will be delivered after payment has been received. As soon as we have processed your order, you will receive an invoice. After payment, delivery will be effected within 20 working days for a normal delivery or 10 working days for a fast delivery.
