The U.K. National Archives has introduced a new search engine to "easily access 11 catalogues and databases on the website through one easy search."
The National Archives Global Search allows users to easily search across the holdings of The National Archives, local and private archives. The new search engine has a number of useful features such as a "Quick Search" and a breakdown of results into subject categories. For more experienced users there is also an "Advanced Search", and the individual catalogues and databases continue to be searchable online.
The National Archives Global Search brings up results from The National Archives´ website pages, the Catalogue, DocumentsOnline and Access to Archives (A2A). It also searches the Moving Here and Family Records websites, the National Register of Archives (NRA), the ARCHON Directory and online research guides. [Link]
