Diaries at the ready: PRONI dates until mid-January

From the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) comes a reminder that this time of year sees many changes to opening/closing hours as well as periods of limited service.

This Thursday (28 November) will be the last late-night at the Titanic Bouvlevard offices until the third week of the New Year, as PRONI will close at 4.45pm on the following Thursday evenings: 4, 11 & 18 December and 8 January 2015.

Over the festive period, PRONI will be closed on Wednesday 24, Thursday 25 and Friday 26 December and on Thursday 1 January 2015.

Late-night Thursdays will recommence on 15 January 2015.

The week after next, 8–12 December, will be Preservation Week at the repository. This will result in some service restrictions. There will be no Document Production, but the Public Search Room, including Self-Service Microfilm area, will be operating as normal. (During that week, the PRONI team will be posting articles about preservation, reprographics, preventative conservation, digital preservation and emergency planning as well as publishing photos recording what they get up to behind the scenes.)
