     The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) reopens to the public tomorrow, Wednesday, 30 March 2011, at 9 a.m. in its new home at 2 Titantic Quarter, Belfast. The new home is one mile from Belfast City Center, and is near the Odyssey Entertainment Complex. According to the press release, "PRONI@TQ" is an "iconic building, sustainable for the future in terms of fabric, maintenance, and archival deposits."  The Public Research Room is double the size of its predecessor and is better equipped for researchers, including those with laptops. Despite having to relocate over 40 km of unique and valuable documents, PRONI achieved the feat in record time, completing the project and opeing to the public months ahead of schedule!
