National Records of Scotland strike disruption

More strike disruption, this time from the National Records of Scotland (

Following a national ballot of members, the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) has informed the National Records of Scotland (NRS) that a one-day strike will take place on Wednesday 30 November. The Historical and Legal Search Rooms will be open as usual, but we will only be able to offer a restricted service.

We hope to be able to provide these services:

access to digital images in the Historical Search Room
access to catalogues and open-shelf library books

The following services will not be available:

document productions
copy orders
supervised locker facilities

The Garden Entrance will be closed, but access will be provided through the front door of General Register House, on Princes Street.

If you require assisted access to any building, please telephone: 0131 535 1334 in advance of your visit and we will make every effort to help you. If you have any queries concerning this notice, please telephone: 0131 535 1333.
