Open access to Local Studies and Museum Service continues

Published Wednesday, 25 November 2015

Enfield Council has announced minor changes to the way its Local Studies and Museum service will operate following a public consultation on the future of the service.

The museum spaces in the ground and first floor of the Dugdale Centre will be continued as will drop in access to the Local Studies Centre for people not requiring one to one support from staff.

A new appointments service will be introduced for people who require professional support from a local studies officer while the Local Studies Centre will be closed to the public on Mondays and Fridays to enable staff to increase the amount of stock which is available digitally

Enfield Council took the decision after listening to the hundreds of people who participated in a consultation on the future of the service.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, Children’s Services and Protection, Cllr Ayfer Orhan, said: “I am delighted to announce that we will be continuing the Local Studies Centre and providing enhanced digital services as well. Taken together the new service will be able to meet customers’ needs now and in the future whilst managing within the very limited resources made available to us.”
