NAI to increase cost of copies from January

The National Archives of Ireland has announced that, with effect from Wednesday 2 January 2013, it is to increase its charges for copying and for providing certified copies to researchers. It represents the first restructuring of prices for 25 years, so it's not surprising the rises are rather substantial.

A summary of the new charges for the most requested copying services can be found here. Regular visitors will notice that the Copy Card, which is used to photocopy text documents or to print off from microfilms, has, effectively, doubled in price.

The hike for certified copies looks likely to raise some blood pressure, too!
