Latest Release of UK National Archives New “Discovery” Catalogue Now Available
The image delivery service is now available, which means you can search and download records, where online versions exist, all in one place. Discovery also allows you to tag records to improve their descriptions, preview records before purchase, filter search results by subject, date range and collection and shows results in order of relevance.
Our current image delivery service, DocumentsOnline, will be switched off later this month. Until then the two services will run in parallel with both providing secure transactions for purchases. The Catalogue will be switched off at the end of June and we will provide more information about this over the coming weeks.
Our online records is a new section of our Records website that showcases a number of our most popular digital collections. From these pages you can search specific collections within Discovery, such as medal index cards, wills and service records. These pages also provide guidance on how to search the records and what the records look like.
