    Video tour at The Hive… Part 2

    • 23rd April 2012

    Things have been busy here at the Archive Service lately, with our History Centre closing to the public for the final time on Saturday 21st April. They will now be working hard to pack up everything ready to move to The Hive to join the rest of the service. Remember, we will be back open to the public in July but for now you can keep up-to-date with any developments here on the blog, or on our Twitter page.

    Here is a video preview of our new searchroom at The Hive. You will notice that we now have two key searchroom areas:

  • An Original Document searchroom, where users will be able to view original documents during staffed opening hours;
  • And a Self-Service area where users can view surrogate copies of our most popular sources on microfilm and CD, such as parish registers, newspapers and wills. These will be available for the whole of The Hive’s opening hours, from 8am until 10pm.
  • What do you think of our new public spaces? We’re excited to see how they will be used and how things will differ from our previous locations. Don’t forget, our experienced staff will still be on hand to guide researchers when we reopen.
