The Search Room will be closed from May 1 through July 10 to allow the staff to relocate all equipment, materials, and offices to the basement for the duration of the second floor renovations. During this time the stacks renovation should be completed, allowing section staff to begin the process of replacing all county records, state agency materials, and other record groups in their proper homes. Staff will also inventory all stacks materials during this time, rather than waiting for January when the Archives has traditionally closed for inventory. Although we realize that this period of closure will have an impact on our researchers, we hope that the time they will gain in January 2008 as a result of inventory already being completed will mitigate that loss somewhat.
We will post more closure and renovation updates as we know them, so please check this space in the coming weeks for the latest news.
