Documents Online to die again!

The National Archives at Kew (www.nationalarchives.gov.uk) has announced the demise of Documents Online once again, though it looks like it really means it this time (there's previously been a couple of false alarms!)! As of this weekend, Documents Online is to be switched off, as will the old Your Archives wiki site, the Equity Pleadings database and Person Search facilities, as Discovery rises into the ascendant.

Records will now be downloadable through Discovery, but an interesting new feature now announced is a preview screen offerings a low resolution image of the document of interest through an image viewer, which you can consult before purchase.

The full story is at http://nationalarchives.gov.uk/news/767.htm
