This is a quick note just to update everyone on some forthcoming changes to the opening hours and staffing arrangements for the Refugee Archives and to detail the Saturday Opening timetable for Semester B.
There are three main strands to this message and these will be detailed as follows:
1). Due to unforeseen circumstances, Paul Dudman, (the Archivist), will be away from the office for a two week period between Monday 2nd February and Friday 13 February. A reduced Archive service will therefore operate during this period and please enquire at the Library Enquiry Desk for further information, (Tel: 020 8223 3434).
2) From Monday 16rh February when Paul Dudman returns to the Archive, he will only be available in the Archive during the normal office hours on Mondays (9am-6pm) ; Tuesdays (10am-7pm) ; and Wednesdays (9am-6pm). For al day on Thursday and on Friday mornings until 1pm, the Archive will be managed by a member of Library Staff subject to staff availability. Please bear in mind it might take a little longer to answer your enquiries so please be patient.
3) The initial plan for Saturday openings in Semester B will be to open the Archive on the dates listed below. Hopefully there will not be any changes to this list but it is still provisional until I can confirm the dates on my return. I will let you know as soon as possible when the official dates are know.
The provisional dates are therefore as follows:
Saturday 21 February : 10am-5pm
Saturday 21 March : 10am-5pm
Saturday 28 March: 10am-5pm
April No Saturday Opening Possible.
Saturday 9 May : 10am- 5pm
Saturday 16 May : 10am – 5pm.
Many thanks in advance for your help and co-operation. Any questions then please email us at: Libraryfirstname.lastname@example.org.
