About This Website

NARA’s Products and Services website was created in 2011 to provide a window into the file formats used for moving image, audio, textual, still image, and graphical records. In 2023 NARA updated Products and Services to focus solely on moving image and audio records.

If you would like to view the 2011 version of Products and Services, the content may be accessed using the Internet Archive Wayback Machine, which contains snapshots of the website captured between 2011 and 2022. NARA's current practice for the digitization of textual, microfilm, still image, and cartographic records aligns with the Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative (FADGI) Still Image Working Group's Technical Guidelines for Digitizing Cultural Heritage Materials.
