Research Our Records

New Archival Research Facility Web Pages


On April 30, 2018, the National Archives and Records Administration will publish updated archival research facility web pages. We are pleased to announce that this completes the first part of a multi-phase, comprehensive project to correct and modernize our web pages.

Launched in early 2017, this project created a more user-friendly experience for our researchers and the public. Feedback from many of you, along with our own user statistics, indicated information was hard to find, inconsistent, and outdated. We heard you and hope the revised provide a better user experience.

To help with this, you will find a standardized web page layout for each of our 14 archival research facilities in the nation. The updated main and secondary researcher pages now have the same information and placement within the layout.
