The Digitization Services Branch at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) makes a wide variety of products for internal NARA customers but not for the general public. We're providing our product specifications to:

  • open discussions about standards adoption
  • demonstrate alignment with national and international initiatives
  • provide the contextual information for the products that we make

The information on this site should not be interpreted as guidance for agencies or other non-NARA stakeholders. For more information on these topics, see: NARA Electronic Records Management (ERM) Guidance on the Web.

Are products defined for all media types?
