You will be charged fees for using the services of the Hessen State Archives. This applies in particular to research work in connection with written enquiries, the use of the reading room and for making copies.
Research work by archivists is charged according to time input; user and reproduction fees are fixed. The costs are laid down in the official list for administrative costs by the Hessen Ministry for Sciences and Arts.
The use of the archives for educational purposes or for scientific (also patrimonial or local) studies that will benefit the general public are free of charge. This also applies if the results are not explicitly and initially intended for publication. Costs for reproductions are also reduced for these purposes.
