Advanced search on the Discovery service

The National Archives has released an update to our new, beta search facility.

Advanced search

The Discovery service remains in beta, or test, form on our Labs site, but we have added an advanced search function, the first in a series of updates that will see this new service refined and improved to fully meet the needs of users before it is implemented on The National Archives' main website.

Your feedback

We are releasing improvements as they are developed, rather than all at once, so we can continue to get your feedback and use it to further develop and refine this new service.

We'll also be holding sessions on site to demonstrate the service and invite user feedback. These will take place at Kew from 11:00-13:00 on 4 August and 14:00-16:00 on 7 September. Please email  discovery@nationalarchives.gov.uk for more information and to let us know if you'd like to take part.

The next release is planned for early August, and will enable users to download search results.
