The National Archives (TNA) have announced that they are making digital records available on their website free of charge for as long as their Kew site is closed to visitors because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Registered users of the TNA's website will be able to order and download up to ten items at a time, to a maximum of 50 items over 30 days. The limits are there to try and help manage the demand for content and ensure the availability of TNA's digital services for everyone.
To access the service and download for free, users will be required to:
- Register/sign in to their Discovery account before adding items to their basket (maximum ten items per basket)
- Abide by the terms of TNA's fair use policy
- Complete the order process to receive a download link, which will remain active for 30 days. (The link will also be saved in ‘Your orders’ in your account for 30 days)
