About the Select List of Publications

This select list of publications includes many types of publications, inlcuding finding aids to the records in the National Archives of the United States. Only publications in print appear.

Publications not listed on this page are unfortunately out of print. Gaps, therefore, appear in lists of publications arranged numerically.

  • Copies of out-of-print publications may be available for use at a National Archives facility or a depository library.
  • Many out-of-print publications prepared before 1981 have been included on the 24 rolls of M248, Publications of the National Archives.
  • NARA is currently updating M248 and hopes to have all its out-of-print finding aids available on microfilm soon. Please call the number shown below to find if a specific publication is now available on microfilm.

The National Archives and Records Administration publishes part of its holdings on microfilm, often with an accompanying descriptive pamphlet. A list of these microfilm publications and descriptive pamphlets is available in Microfilm Resources for Research: A Comprehensive Catalog [search this catalog online].

Please note: Some of the publications included in this select list are free; others must be purchased. Fee items are indicated by a dollar sign ($) following the entry.
