Ground was broken earlier this month, reports Czech Radio Brno
, for a new building to house the Moravian Regional Archive. The new building will be adjacent to Masaryk University's new campus in Bohunice, a southern suburb. The archive is currently housed in seventeen (yes, only 17!) different buildings that are scattered among three regions of southern and eastern Moravia. The planned facility will have depository space for eighty kilometers (yes, 80!) of archival records and will be linked to a new reading room and exhibition space.
Yay! Now maybe I'll have a place to do my research. Unfortunately, since there is no date for the scheduled completion, the new building will certainly not open until after I leave Brno. I hope they have a bus between all those other facilities.
