The National Archives’ new search interface is now available! Check out Online Public Access at www.archives.gov/research/search!
The National Archives’ flagship initiative in our Open Government plan is to develop online services to meet the 21st century needs of the public. Toward that end we have revamped our website, including taking a new look at how we provide online access to our holdings.
The Online Public Access prototype includes:
• Access to information about our records that is currently in the Archival Research Catalog (ARC) and on Archives.gov, and selected electronic records from Access to Archival Databases (AAD) and the Electronic Records Archives (ERA) – all through one search!
• Search Refinements and Topic Clusters to limit your results in a variety of ways, such as by date or location, or focus on a topic of interest
