Requisition of Documents:
Except for Ministries, departments, Parastatal bodies and Local Authorities which can requisition their own files and documents which they had transferred to the KNA&DS, all archival materials in the custody of KNA&DS can only be consulted in the departmentâ€™s Searchroom and cannot be loaned out.
In the area of education, historical films and video shows are organized for schools, visiting teams and members of the public on the premises, free of charge.Conducted tours of the KNA&DS Art Gallery – which features a permanent exhibition, and lectures on selected subjects in history are given to these teams on request.This forms part of the continuing education on the value of the various archival sources of information for all our prospective users.These lectures to schools and colleges are tailored according to their syllabi.
Our out reach publicity programme through brochures and newsletter sent to all the schools in the countryÂ (except those in the far-flung districts in North Eastern) encourages the schools, colleges and other institutions of learning to visit KNA&DS.This is intended to educate the young generation on our information heritage as potential users.
Tourists stand to benefit from our research and education service by sampling the variety of the African art, material culture and Kenyan history displayed in the Art Gallery.
