Introduction

This page provides a list of Federal Government organizations linked to descriptions of their records in the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The descriptions are based on the Guide to Federal Records in the National Archives of the United States, 1995 edition, and are arranged by branch of government (Congress, Federal Courts, executive agencies) and, thereafter, alphabetically by agency name. Each description corresponds to a National Archives record group.

The National Archives acquires, preserves, and makes available for research records of enduring value created or received by organizations of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Federal Government. Records in the custody of the National Archives date from pre-federal times to the present. Most of the records are textual, but they can come in a wide variety of media. Records may be microfilm, maps and charts, architectural and engineering plans, aerial photographs, motion picture reels, video recordings, sound recordings, computer data sets, or still pictures.

A large portion of these records is housed in the National Archives Building in Washington, DC, and the National Archives at College Park, MD. However, since 1969 the National Archives has managed a system of regional archives that hold valuable federal records of regional origin and significance. Federal records may also be found in each of the Presidential libraries managed by the National Archives and in a few non-National Archives repositories that, by special agreement with the Archivist of the United States, are affiliated participants in the federal archival network.

Use the "find" or "search" function on your web-browser to locate the organizations of interest to you. If you are not sure of the official titles of the organizations, enter an appropriate key word instead. For example, a search of "trade" will pull up such various organizations as the International Court of Trade, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Office of the Special Adviser to the President on Foreign Trade.

The title of the record group includes the name of the agency responsible for creating or receiving the records in the record group. The dates shown are the beginning date of the earliest and the ending date of the latest series described in the chapter.

The Online Catalog also provides detailed descriptions for records from a variety of record groups.
