TNA Rediscovers the Record

The National Archives' David Thomas, Director of Technology and Chief Information Officer, has blogged about some significant developments to be hitting the TNA website soon through the Rediscovering the Record project - most notably a new platform for the National Archives online catalogue, which has jumped from 5 million searchable terms in 1998 to over 11 million today. The new version will provide the ability for users to add to add to the catalogue entries themselves (I assume on a Wiki based system such as the Your Archives project?), and there will also be new smartphone apps developed.

The post is well worth reading at http://ht.ly/2m29l, and there is more to come, so do bookmark the site!
