Update to changes in reading room services
Our reading room hours pilot across our four offices finished on 1 March 2021.
Current reading room hours will continue until 30 June 2021.
Changing our opening hours allowed us to assess the options for refocusing our resources into areas that increased discoverability of and access to New Zealand’s public archives. It also helped us ensure we are in a good place for the eventual move to our new facility in Wellington.
This time will allow us to collate and assess our findings and make an informed decision on future reading room hours. A final decision will be made prior to 30 June 2021 with go-live from 1 July 2021.
Thank you to those who have shared their thoughts on these changes with us so far. Read more about our change in reading room services.
