Most of the refurbishment work on the ground floor has now been completed, with a few bits and pieces to still be finished off over the next couple of weeks.
One of our most significant accomplishments through the refurbishment has been developing the Gateway, situated near the main entrance on the ground floor - which will now open on Monday 18 January 2009.
We have developed a new public register room, which now holds some of the Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) collections. We have upgraded the finding aids area which is located where the old Reading Room entrance was, refreshed the locker room and developed the space for our new readers lounge. We have also developed new public toilets!
We really do appreciate the patience and understanding so far, it has been a somewhat confusing and distracting time for those of you who have been regularly visiting - thank you.
