      Access to Archives (A2A) is part of the growing on-line archives network in
      the UK. The A2A database enables people to search for archives across
      England covering an amazing breadth and diversity of subjects, people and
      places. A2A is a partnership lead by The National Archives, including the
      MLA, The British Library, the National Council on Archives and the Society
      of Archivists.


      The A2A Central Team was delighted to announce that last Saturday, 25
      September, the 10,000,000th catalogue download took place on the A2A website
      at http://www.a2a.org.uk The catalogue downloaded described miscellaneous
      deeds and documents relating to places and people in Bristol and elsewhere
      (Bristol Record Office, ref 37890). This means that catalogues on A2A - the
      English strand of the UK archives network - have been consulted 10 million
      times since launch. Louise Craven, A2A Programme Manager, said: "The
      millions of catalogue downloads from the A2A site demonstrate what a
      valuable resource it is for our users, both expert researchers and those
      accessing archives for the first time."
