National Monuments Record of Wales Archives and Library Bulletin – April 2016

Welcome to the latest monthly edition of the National Monuments Record of Wales (NMRW) Archives and Library Bulletin which lists all newly catalogued material.
http://www.rcahmw.gov.uk/HI/ENG/Our+Services/Donate+Records/Recent+Acquisitions/. The archival items, library books and journal articles are all available to view in our public reading room. The full archive catalogue is available on Coflein and contains digital copies of many of the items listed.

In preparation for our move to new premises at the National Library of Wales we will be suspending our library, search-room and enquiry service from 4 April 2016. We anticipate the suspension to last for three months.

During the closure we will be unable to accommodate visitors or reply to enquiries. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

We look forward to welcoming you to our new library and reading room in the summer.

Please pass this message on to anyone you think might benefit from this information.
