The City Archives provide information about archival materials, deliver Photostats, photocopies or other copies as well as extracts of records. The procedure for providing archival information is regulated by the “Procedures for Answering Inquiries” approved by the City Archivist Director of the City Archives,  available on the City Archives website or at the Archives (in Estonian).

Applications may be sent by mail or e-mail linnaarhiiv@tallinnlv.ee (an application form is available on the City Archives website) or may be filled out in the City Archives office.

The archival and library materials can only be used in the Archives' reading room. Records will not be delivered to the reading room, nor copies made of them if their physical condition is unsatisfactory. Photographing or filming of archival materials in the reading room is not allowed.

Exact rules for the use of the reading room can be found in the “Regulations for Use of the Tallinn City Archives Reading Room” ,  available on the City Archives website or at the Archives (in Estonian).
