Proposed changes at TNA

The (UK) National Archives have posted the following notice:

We will be closed to the public at Kew for the afternoon of Monday 29 June from 14:00.

This is to enable us to brief all staff on a number of proposed changes at The National Archives.

You are invited to attend one of our open information meetings where Jeff James, Director of Public Services, will take you through these proposals. The meetings will take place at Kew:

• 12:15 on Thursday 2 July in the talks room, first floor reading room
• 10:00 on Saturday 11 July in the talks room, first floor reading room

We will be publishing this information on nationalarchives.gov.uk on 2 July 2009, for those unable to attend either meeting.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

It remains to be seen whether these proposed changes are good or bad for clients, but kudos to TNA for posting a notice and scheduling meetings. It isn't clear to what extent these are for information or consultation. I'd guess they're things TNA would like to implement unless they get a highly adverse reaction. You might want to stay alert to changes, especially if you plan a visit this summer.
