To protect the archives deposited at the HAEU from deterioration, no photocopying of archival records is allowed. Whenever possible, the archives are consulted in their microform or digital format. Microform readers in the reading room are equipped with digital copying software.
The use of private digital photo devices is permitted. A digital photo device may also be requested at the reception for use in the reading room upon signature for loan on a daily basis. In exceptional cases, archives staff at the reception may carry out digitisation services on request.
