As a result of budget reductions and a need to modernise, we need to adjust our focus at Denbighshire Archives. This means reducing the service’s opening hours.
By reducing our opening hours, we will provide a reasonable level of public opening hours for visitors, whilst also allowing staff more time to spend on essential behind the scenes work, including:
- publishing our catalogue of holdings online
- digitising collections and making them available online
- digital preservation
We are proposing to reduce the opening hours from the current 28 hours a week, to 17 hours a week from January 2015. We are proposing three options for the new opening hours, and we would like you to vote for your preferred option. You also have the opportunity to propose a fourth option, if you like.
The closing date to have your say is Friday 5th December 2014. We will make a final decision shortly after this date, and the new opening hours will come into effect in January 2015.
