Just like at Christmas and Hogmanay, UCL runs the risk of annoying the spirit of Bentham – who, regular readers might remember, regarded such frivolous holidays as a waste of working time – by closing down for the Easter break on Wednesday 20 April. As such, our last weekly check of submissions to the Transcription Desk and issuing of a progress update before the break will take place on Friday 15 April.
UCL reopens briefly on Wednesday 27 April when submissions will be checked, before closing again on Friday 29 April until Tuesday 3 May to mark the impending royal festivities (I suppose we should be grateful to them for an extra day off, at least). The regular Friday checks will resume from 6 May.
The Transcription Desk will remain fully-functional and available throughout the break, but emails and other queries may not be attended to until we return. If transcribers have any queries about these arrangements, please do contact us before the break begins on 20 April.
What Jeremy might have made of a holiday for a royal wedding can only be speculated upon.
