The Mid Atlantic Regional Archives is in the middle of a planned move of a number Start Printed Page 36412of certain, infrequently used records to offsite storage to reduce rental costs and preserve the records space with better archival environmental controls. The records will not be accessible while in transit. After the move, these records will be accessible through the Mid Atlantic Regional Archives. Relevant entries in the Archival Research Catalogue (ARC) will be updated to reflect location and access changes.

The temporary, once-weekly closure will allow staff to complete activities necessary for the move (such as reboxing and cataloguing). To assist extended-stay researchers, NARA selected Tuesday for temporary closing to avoid conflict with the regular closing hours of other related Philadelphia institutions, such as the Historical Society of Pennsylvania's genealogy and manuscript collections, which are closed on Mondays. NARA Mid Atlantic out-of-town researchers, who frequently use multiple institutional archives, will not find them closed on the same day during the summer week days. The actual shipping of records will take place from July through October. However, normal hours will be restored the week of September 11, 2005.
