Search the online catalogue


National Archives uses Adlib software to manage its online catalogue, which is a specialised collection management system for archives.

This ensures specific information is captured in accordance with the General International Standard of Archival Description ISAD (G), which aims to standardise entries across all archives to make them as useful as possible to researchers.

This includes a unique reference code, a document title, covering dates and further detailed descriptions or information, where necessary.

For further information on how to use the online catalogue see FAQ.
