While staff assistance and advice are available to help locate information, it is expected that those undertaking research are prepared to spend their own time consulting sources. In the case of postal enquiries, or those searches which require a lot of staff involvement, a fee may be levied, if necessary. Many of the sources are on microfiche or microfilm. Copies from film are available. Current charges apply.
