How do I access the documents I’ve found in the catalogue?

Most of the items in the catalogue can be accessed in the Shetland Museum and Archives at Hay’s Dock, Lerwick, Shetland. There is no need to make an appointment.  If you have a reference number for an item you are interested in please bring it with you.


When is the archives open?

We are open to researchers Monday to Friday 10am to 4.00pm.


How can I access records if I can’t come to the Archives?

In most cases we can provide photocopies of records. However, if an item is too fragile, is in poor condition or is too large we may not be able to copy it.

We will ask you to sign a copyright declaration before we provide copies.


The photocopying charges are:

A4 black and white: 20p

A4 colour: 40p

A3 black and white: 30p

A3 colour: 60p

A4 copies from microfilm 35p

We will also charge postage.


Please contact us by one of the methods below if you need photocopies.


How can I hear oral history recordings?


We hope to have our oral history collection available online in the future. At the moment you can search for oral history material using the catalogue. When you have found an item you are interested in you can contact us and we will provide a recording on CD. Some material is not available due to copyright reasons or at the request of the interviewee.


You can also contact us by email at info@shetlandmuseumandarchives.org.uk or by phone during the above hours on 01595 741554.


If there are other questions you would like answered on this page please just let us know.
