The National Archives (TNA) in Kew, London, will cease to provide self-service printing facilities or camera stations to visiting researchers from 11 December.
For those that require high-quality paper copies of original records, the TNA's record copying service will be available at standard advertised rates.
Researchers will be able to obtain a refund after 11 December of any unused funds remaining on their copying card or reader's ticket.
This decision has been made in response to a significant decrease in the demand for copying services over the past four years as researchers increasingly bring their own digital equipment.
Looking a bit further forward, the TNA has also announced that it is to change its document ordering times with effect from 1 January 2018. From that date, ordering times will be 9:30am to 4pm. Details.
