TNA user group - September minutes

The minutes from the September 11th meeting of the National Archives at Kew (www.nationalarchives.gov.uk) have been published online at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/get-involved/uag-meeting-notes.htm

The digitisation update may be of interest at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documents/uag11091208d-digitisation-update.pdf particularly with regard to the National consortium planning to digitise school books, with the minutes stating that "over 100 archives now part of the consortium to digitise and index more than 9000 School registers and log books circa. 8m names for the period up to 1914. Wales have also now joined the consortium."

Updates and enhancements to the Discovery catalogue are also discussed at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documents/uag11091203-discovery-service-update-cover.pdf
