Use of Reproduction in Publications and other Multimedia

SAHA must be acknowledged as the custodian of the reproduced item within the publication and multimedia.

A copy of the publication or multimedia must be provided for free to SAHA for use by others in our reading room. SAHA will not produce copies of these items.

Service Fee

A service fee will be charged for all reproduction requests, in addition to the basic reproduction costs. This fee contributes towards the ongoing digitisation of SAHA's collections as part of making South African history freely available to the general public.

Offsite Reproduction

Should SAHA need to provide copies of material we cannot digitise on site you may be charged an additional fee which will vary depending on the nature of your request. 

Payment Method

International payments can only be made through Payfast.

Local payment may be paid in cash at SAHA's offices, or via EFT and Payfast.

Updating Fee Structure

The SAHA reproduction fee structure is updated annually. Next Update: April 2017.
