Adding my thanks as well - there's more already done than I thought.

Not sure how it will be going currently as many NLA staff are working from home.

Yes,  my ancient retired Archivist rellies were also surprised at how much has already been achieved and its "only  nine or ten weeks" to end of June ...

Fingers crossed that the lack of patrons through the front door has contributed to the opportunity to proceed without distraction ....
