Request a reproduction for personal research purposes

Requests for reproductions must relate to a limited and precise number of documents (maximum 50 views per 24 month rolling period), as it is forbidden to reproduce a collection in its entirety. The IRFA reserves the right to refuse to reproduce a document that may be made available to the public, in particular in order to limit the department’s workload. The reader undertakes to use these reproductions only for private purposes or for research work, not to transfer them to a third party under any circumstances, and to accompany any reproduction with the words “©Institut de recherche France-Asie” and the document code. For any other use, written permission must be obtained from the management.

Digital reproductions will be invoiced according to current rates.
