Our catalogue Discovery and other databases

Discovery is our platform that provides a single point of online access to catalogue and organisational data from across the archive sector.

Discovery includes:

You can add, edit and delete information about your archive service's collections on Discovery by using the Manage Your Collections tool.
You can still access the data from our annual Accessions to Repositories survey, as well as the Hospital Records Database which provides information on the existence and location of the records of UK hospitals.
