NLI invites tenders for its summer Genealogy Service

The National Library of Ireland has issued a Request For Tenders (RFT) for a supplier of genealogy services from 18 March to 31 October.

The Library runs a free Genealogy Service all-year round; it is available without appointment, Monday to Friday, 9:30am to 4:45pm, and is provided by the Library's own small genealogy team.

During the main tourist and visitor season, however, the Library team is complemented by a contracted team of professional genealogists and the days of operation are extended to include Saturday mornings (9:15 to 12:45).

As you'd expect, the RFT sets out the duties required of the contractor team, and there's nothing unusual in the description provided. But I just wanted to share this element:

    • Assist users with online resources, including the NLI’s parish register website, microfilm
      and printing.

My red. Don't the words look good!

Closing date for receipt of tenders: 20 February (Noon).
