The National Archives is seeking your views on a new strategic vision for the archives sector

The National Archives (TNA) is seeking your views on a new strategic vision for the archives sector, and as it's Archives Awareness Week it's a great time to get your voice heard.

Over the summer, TNA engaged with users, the archives sector, partners and key stakeholders to develop a new strategic vision for archives. It identified key themes and priorities that need to be addressed in order to deliver the vision.

A period of consultation has now started - based on your views TNA wants to co-create an action plan that supports the vision.

The consultation runs until 11 January 2017.
