You Can Tag It!

Tagging is a fun and easy way for you to help make National Archives records found more easily online. By adding keywords, terms, and labels to a record, you can do your part to help the next person discover that record.

Getting Started

What’s a good tag? Any keywords or labels that are meaningful to you, as well as names you find in the record. Simply type what you see. To get started:

  1. Create a username and password in the National Archives Catalog.
  2. Login to the system.
  3. Start a tagging mission or create your own mission by doing a keyword search for your favorite topics.
