Discovery, our online catalogue, is the key to the document holdings of The National Archives, and many other record offices. Since it was first introduced it has undergone many changes and refinements, and this session will show how you can make the most of its features. These include simple and advanced searches, filtering and sorting search results. This will help you make the most of Discovery in advance of a visit to Kew, or to obtain copies remotely.
