Title: Introduction to Research at the National Archives and Records Administration
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) houses historical records of the United States Government. These holdings include historical documents, photographs, audio recordings, and other materials created by Federal agencies, Federal courts, and the U.S. Congress from the eighteenth century to the present. Given the volume of material, locating and accessing particular records can seem daunting. However, NARA has multiple tools available to help researchers identify and access records online. This webinar provides an overview of these tools and discuss strategies for searching for particular records at NARA.
