You can order the Society's publications online, by email, in person at The National Archives, or by mail order.


Recent publications (back to 2006) can be bought simply by choosing the appropriate price and then clicking the Buy Now button. The prices depend on whether or not you are a member, and on the area to which you want the item delivered (UK,the rest of Europe, or the rest of the World). To get members' prices on all publications you buy this year, select Member (+ annual fee) for your first order. Clicking the button will take you to the PayPal web site (you should see the LIS logo up at the top), where you can pay. Make sure your PayPal address is the address to which you want the item delivered. Each purchase is a separate PayPal transaction (there is no checkout or continue shopping), so if you want to buy a number of volumes you may be able to save on delivery charges by emailing us with your order.

By email

Email the details of your order to us and we will invoice you by Paypal. Make sure you provide a shipping address, and we will include the cost of delivery in the invoice. More information about Paypal.
