The National Archives’ reading room services are currently suspended. Many of our staff are working from home and still providing a service and point of contact for the archive sector.
Here you can find our statements relating to Archive Service Accreditation, Places of Deposit, collections safety and our funding programmes. We have also compiled a list of useful resources from other organisations and created a re-opening checklist of areas for consideration as the archives sector moves towards re-establishing access to collections.
Find out about our Covid-19 Archives Fund, which will help secure analogue and digital records at risk across the UK.
