National Archives Digitised records to be free while the NA is closed
« on: Thursday 02 April 20 12:27 BST (UK) »
Moderator comment: several topics on the same subject now merged, so there may be some apparent non-sequiturs!


TNA has announced via Twitter that they are working on making the digitised records that currently carry a charge free while the Archives is closed.

Well done them, their techy folk are working from home to do this and often, like so many,  juggling work with childcare so currently no ETA for the access to be available but its a lovely gesture.

Hi
Don't know if this has been posted already.
Just had an email from National Archives saying

We’re pleased to announce that soon we will be providing free access to digitised collections that are available on our website (and usually chargeable) for as long as we are closed to the public. We’ll publish more details when this goes live.
