New National Archives Catalogue online

New National Archives Catalogue online<p> </p>The National Archives has launched their new online catalogue, the old one will be disappearing soon so we will all be using the new “Discovery” Catalogue from now on. This catalogue will incorporate the Documents Online as well. I have had a play and it seems very smooth and easy to use.

The press release says …..

This year we will be replacing our current Catalogue and DocumentsOnline service with Discovery.

Discovery is The National Archives’ new catalogue, providing a new way to explore our collections. Discovery is much more than a replacement for the current Catalogue, as it has been designed to host, search and display the many different databases and datasets held at The National Archives. By doing so it provides a more robust and integrated system to manage current and future data and storage needs, along with a consistent and seamless user experience.
