The National Archives (TNA) launched its four-year strategy in 2019, Archives for Everyone. In it we share our belief that TNA is an essential resource for our democracy, a public good, and an asset for future generations. As we become the inclusive, entrepreneurial and disruptive archive, we adapt, rethink and reshape our practice to meet contemporary and future challenges.

What does this mean for research at the Archives? How can we most effectively use our resources to further knowledge of the archive and archival practice in ways that include our audiences? Through the lens of current work, this talk will suggest some answers and seek a conversation about how TNA can best partner with digital humanities communities.
