PRONI – Preservation Week and beyond

The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, Belfast
Just a reminder that it's Preservation Week at the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI).

This means that while PRONI is still open to the public as normal, its main focus this week will be on the various aspects of a repository's work that goes on behind the scenes. As a result, there is a limited public service every day this week.

While the Public Search Room, including Self-Service Microfilm area, will be operating as normal, there will be no Document Prodution servive.

During last year's Preservation Week, PRONI published daily blogposts describing the essential work being carried out behind closed doors. I'm not sure if something similar will be published this time round. Either way, you can read last year's here.

While on the subject of PRONI, you might like to read Chris Paton's detailed report on last week's User Forum meeting which includes information about what we can expect from PRONI over the next year or so.
