Disruption to service - mid June to mid July 2018

Essential maintenance work is needed to ensure that the roller racking in one of the MRC's archive strongrooms continues to function. Whilst the engineers are working on sections of the racking, staff will be unable to access the archive collections stored in the affected area.

A list of the collections which will be affected by the first phase of the work - from mid June to the end of June (approximately 18th - 29th June) - is now available. We will continue to update the website with information about the progress of the work and collections affected.
