What do you do when the National Archives runs out of room to store documents? That’s the question being asked now in Iceland.
The National Archives of Iceland (ÞSK) have temporarily stopped receiving government documents due to a lack of shelf space, RÚV reports. Representatives say the government has known about the situation since at least January, but has yet to solve the problem.
“We’ve stopped receiving documents,” Eiríkur G. Guðmundsson, an archivist at ÞSK, told Fréttablaðið. “Unfortunately we can’t accept any more before we know when we will get additional space.”
