Enquiry Service – What we charge…

We are happy to give advice about using our collections and can undertake quick catalogue and record checks free of charge.

For enquiries which take longer than half an hour, a research fee of £18 per half hour will be charged, and where enquiries involve reproduction and/or postage, this will incur an extra cost.

Please note that we can only undertake research on our own collections – we do not carry out research if it involves collections held by other organisations. Also, please bear in mind that we may not be able to answer any or all of your questions. The nature of archives is such that records may simply not have survived over the years or will not always contain the information that you need.

If you have an enquiry or would like us to do some research on your behalf please e-mail archives@culturepk.org.uk or call us on 01738 477 022.

You can also get in touch by post:
AK Bell Library,
2-8 York Place,
Perth,
PH2 8EP.

Please note that under the Data Protection Act 1998 the personal details supplied by you when making an enquiry will be kept in a manual or automated file for administrative and record management information purposes only. The information will not be passed to third parties outwith Culture Perth and Kinross.
