Burns Monument Centre at Kilmarnock

In March I wrote about the media launch for the new Burns Monument Centre in Kilmarnock, which I was lucky enough to visit a week before it officially opened - see Burns Monument Centre media launch.

Today was the first day that I actually carried out some research in the centre, and I have to say, it gets a big thumbs up! The research room is nice and compact, with all the relevant microfilms easy to hand, microfilm viewers that work, and all sorts. In due course the centre will be providing access to the same computer system currently in operation at the ScotlandsPeople Centre, though this is likely to be towards the end of the year.

Well worth a visit!
