The advent of the Internet and the CD Rom has even further increased the use of such materials. It should be noted that British law in regard to use of public documents differs considerably from that of the United States. Tim Padfield is Copyright Officer of the Public Record Office in London and Secretary of the Lord Chancellors Advisory Council on Public Records. This handy guide offers advice and examples which take account of the special interests of archivists and archive users, and provides sample cases based on actual inquiries. Also included is the full text of the British statutory regulations for the copying of archival and library materials.
