LAC Consultation Room Hours

Good news from LAC. As of 6 June opening hours for the textual and microform consultation rooms at 395 Wellington Street in Ottawa are extended.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays the rooms will be open from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. and on Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The Reference and Genealogy Rooms will also be open, but without service.

Kudos to LAC for recognizing that not everyone can make it during the regular workday. Researchers coming from out of town will benefit, perhaps avoiding the need for expensive additional visits.

Here’s the LAC announcement . The hours for other days are at

UPDATE: With 50 hours open per week LAC now leads the pack. Next is the US National Archives in Washington DC (48 hours and no weekend service,) the UK National Archives (41 hours, no Sunday or Monday service,) BANQ Mtl (38 hours) and Australia Archives Canberra (35 hours).
