Aims and policies: "London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) is the archive repository for many London-wide organisations. The archives of the City of London Corporation (COL) and the former Greater London Council (GLC), London County Council (LCC), Middlesex County Council (MCC) and their predecessors are held here. LMA also holds records for many religious, public, business, local authority and other organisations based in London. The dates of items that can be found here range from medieval to the present day, and our collections are constantly expanding. At the moment, there are documents to fill around 72 km worth of shelving!"

Building works and closure: "Modernising and automating access to our collections and catalogues

This January, we introduced our new comprehensive catalogue to the 79 kilometres of archive collections held on this site: this is the outcome of over 8 years of work by our Acquisitions and Cataloguing team. In the course of the year, we will be introducing online document requests: coupled with electronic catalogue, you will be able to plan your visit very effectively."

LMA area map: "We do not hold every kind of record for all the areas. For the City of London we hold no parish registers,"
