Open Data

Open Data at the National Archives

At the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), we are working to implement open data policies, including the May 9, 2013, Executive Order (EO 13642) and accompanying Open Data Policy - Managing Information as an Asset (M-13-13). The policy requires agencies to open data and information in machine-readable formats in order to fuel innovation in government and the private sector. Our Open Data efforts are an expansion of our work in Open Government and Digital Government Strategy and support our efforts to engage with citizen developers.

Public Data Listing

Our Public Data Listing contains data assets that are available to the public. These include datasets in a variety of formats, including xml, csv, pdf, and html. You can also access the entire listing in json format and access previous listings. Publicly available data assets are also included on Data.gov.

Customer Feedback

Please send your suggestions on how we could expand the Public Data listing by posting a comment on our NARAtions Blog post, "Have Your Say: Open More Data," email opengov@nara.gov or create a new issue on our Github repository.  In your feedback, please let us know if there are other formats for data assets you would like to see made available.

Our implementation of the Open Data Policy also includes a data inventory schedule and data publication process. To learn more visit our reporting on milestones for the Digital Government Strategy.
