The National Archives website - layout changes

The National Archives at Kew has again made changes to its website layout. From its news section:

Today we launch further improvements to The National Archives' website with our new homepage and our new Records section:

You can find advice and guidance on the records we hold, our Catalogue and other databases, as well as animated guides to archives and interactive tutorials to help you read old records. All the changes are based on extensive customer research and testing, to make it easier for you to find the information you need.

This latest stage in the redesign of our website follows the success of the new education section, launched in September, and the corporate pages launched last month. We'll be revealing our improved information management section next year.

We are always interested in receiving your feedback on our website. Please send your comments to

On the whole, a vast improvement, in that everything is now more logically grouped together in relevant areas, and at long last I can find the Hospital Database link again (it disappeared there for a bit)! On the downside, perhaps one or two more clicks to locate what you need now.
