PRONI: Changes to hours and services in December

The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) has a number of changes to its opening hours and service operations during December and early January.

PRONI, Titanic Boulevard, Belfast
Preservation week
PRONI's annual Preservation Week will be held Monday 10 to Friday 14 December inclusive.

During this time, PRONI's Preservation & Collections Management staff get an opportunity to dedicate some time to the vital work that goes on behind the scenes. The knock-on effect means a reduced service to researchers.

Document ordering and production will be suspended throughout the week, but the Search Room and self-service microfilm facilities will be available as normal.

Late Night Thursdays
PRONI is usually open on Thursday evenings until 8:45pm, but for the rest of December and 3 January, the doors will close at 4:45pm. Late-night openings resume on 10 January 2019.

Christmas/New Year closures
PRONI will be closed from Monday 24 December to Wednesday 26 December inclusive and again on Tuesday 1 January 2019. Normal hours will operate on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 December and from Wednesday 2 January.
