Engaging with UKAD

Enabling and developing online access to collections descriptions is an important aspect of archives management. To see background information about the development of UKAD, including its aims and objectives, you can visit an archived version of the original UKAD website

This page provides information about the annual UK Archives Discovery Network (UKAD) Forum, an event which is free for archivists and information professionals to attend.
