An archivist will catalogue the documents and add the descriptions to NROCAT, our online catalogue.
We arrange each collection of documents by its archive creator and try to preserve the original order of the records where possible.
It is best, therefore, not to re-sort documents before transferring them to us.
If you already have a list of some or all of the documents this can be very useful, as can any information you have about the people or organisation which created the records.
Cataloguing may take some time to complete, owing to the quantity of records which we receive each year.
We normally aim to add a summary description of the records to NROCAT in the meantime.
