Description

Photos, personal papers, oral histories, manuscripts, military records, original legal documents, maps and artifacts that chronicle lives, historical events and social movements are the kinds of material that make up archival collections. These resources are not only preserved for the historical record, but are collected for discovery and use. Technology has significantly increased the accessibility of these collections through NARA databases that are free to the public.
