After 10 years of providing online access to the National Archives’ holdings the Archival Research Catalog (ARC) is permanently retiring on August 15th.
You can still search descriptions and digital content using our Online Public Access search http://www.archives.gov/research/search/
Online Public Access contains all of the descriptions and digitized content that was in ARC. Online Public Access also searches our web site, Archives.gov, and the web sites of the Presidential Libraries for information related to your search. Your search results will be grouped into categories based upon the type of information we have that is relevant to your search:
- Digital copies of records
- Descriptions of records
- Web pages on Archives.gov
- Web pages on the Presidential Libraries’ websites
We will be sharing information and tips for using Online Public Access over the next few weeks here on NARAtions. if you have any questions about using Online Public Access please leave a comment.
