The retrieval of requested collection items will be at set times throughout the day:
10:30, 12:00, 13:30, and 15:00 for the National Collection of Aerial Photography and
10:30, 13:00, and 15:00 for all other material

Boxed photographic prints, library books and periodicals remain on open access
Improved digital facilities

There will be more computers for browsing our online resources, some with double screens

Free Wi-Fi has been installed for use with your own laptops

The number of workstations has been increased for consulting the National Collection of Aerial Photography

More online images

We will be increasing the number of photographs and drawings being digitised so that more images are available to view online

For further details about these changes, please see our website. We will be reviewing these changes over the next 3 months and welcome your feedback - please complete our online survey.

That all sounds good to me...!
