The new Local Studies Library reopened in its
new home on 14 March 2005. However, it has changed
its policies on the use of microfilm readers.
In a nutshell, I used to book the reader/printer
for an hour, copy off what I wanted and then transcribed
them later. Under the new system, you can only
book the manual machines. The reader/printers
are left free and you have to swap over when you've
found what you want. That just wouldn't work for
me, so I'm sorry to say that they will be no more
Yesterdays for the foreseeable future.
