Access to Archives

The A2A database is hosted by The National Archives on behalf of smaller repositories throughout England. The database allows you to search and browse catalogues from many archives in England, dating from the 900s to the present day. These archives are cared for in local record offices and libraries, universities, museums and national and specialist institutions across England, where they are made available to the public. Visit the Access to Archives website or search the A2A database.

Community Archives and Heritage Group

The Community Archives and Heritage Group (CAHG) aims to monitor and inform developments in the field of Community Archives, and to act as an expert body on best practice in this area. The Group was set up to build on the work of the Community Access to Archives Project. It was affiliated to the National Council on Archives in July 2005. The Group brings together bodies and organisations concerned with Community Archives, and provides a forum for the regular exchange of views and information.

Oral History Society

The Oral History Society provide really good, basic practical advice for groups undertaking interviewing projects.

Archives 4 All

The Archives 4 All website features collections from archives and community groups around England. Archives 4 All, the fourth phase of the Access to Archives (A2A) programme, has developed partnership projects between archive holders and users. In order to help establish and reinforce connections between archives and the local community, repositories have been encouraged to work with community groups.
